(MUNCIE, IN) - One of the first Indiana hospitals to begin visitation restrictions because of H1N1 flu is one of the first to lift them.

Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie has removed all restrictions. Leslie Cowan works in the ER and says things seem to be leveling off.

She says there's clear evidence the restrictions were effective while in place and says it could become necessary to bring them back at any time.

She's still reminding visitors to only come by when they're healthy and to use plenty of hand sanitizer, washing their hands frequently.

The restrictions had been put in place October 15th and only allowed in healthy adults, no children.
