One panhandle hospital is keeping its doors closed to anyone 18 and under.

Box Butte General Hospital has their visitation restriction still in effect.

The hospital is restricting visitors under 18 to the facility due to a spike in respiratory illness in the community.

The hospital will let the public know when the restriction is lifted.
