Hospital restricting young vistors during flu, RSV season
Porterville Recorder

Until further notice, children younger than age 13 visiting Sierra View Medical Center are not permitted in any of the hospital’s inpatient units, except for the Distinct Part Skilled Nursing Facility. Children requiring hospitalization will continue their normal course of care. The restriction on the young visitors will be in effect for the duration of the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) and Influenza (flu) season, which began Monday, and usually lasts from winter until early spring, depending on the number of RSV and flu cases seen.
