Changes are in store for visitors at UK hospital.

Wednesday morning officials there announced they will no longer allow visitors under the age of 18.

They're also making changes to the number of patients allowed in a room.

Only one adult visitor is allowed at a time in a hospital room.

Only one person is allowed with a patient, age 18 and up, at outpatient clinics as well.

Officials say these rules will be place until further notice, or possibly until the end of flu season.

UK Health officials say the actions are taking place to prevent the spread of the H1N1 virus to patients.

Some admit the new changes will be difficult to follow, but they say it's understandable.
