Officials at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin say they will ban visitors under the age of 12 from any in-patient care areas, starting Thursday -- unless the child has a doctor's appointment. 

The move comes in response to what the hospital calls one of the most severe flu seasons seen in years.  The restrictions are being put in place to limit the potential exposure to the virus by those most vulnerable.  A formal statement from Chief Medical Officer Mike Gutzeit indicates similar precautionary steps have been taken at children's hospitals across the U-S.
