EvergreenHealth in Kirkland, Wash., is screening all visitors coming into the hospital for flu-like symptoms. It's the first time in nine years they’ve implemented these screenings, according to an article on the Q13 Fox website.

Nurses will greet each visitor and ask them basic health questions to determine whether they’ll be able to visit patients.
