Officials say a visitation restriction brought on by the flu has been lifted at Lehigh Valley Health Network Tuesday.

Children under 18 are now allowed to visit patients at the Allentown hospital.

The restriction was originally put in place to stop the spread of the virus.

Authorities say the number of cases has gone down, but the hospital is still asking anyone with flu-like symptoms to stay home.
