State health officials say they believe the flu season has peaked and now, they’re meeting to decide when they will lift hospital restrictions put in place a few weeks ago.

Right now, hospitals still aren’t allowing many visitors for flu patients. People under 18 can’t make visits without special arrangements and only immediate family members, partners, or significant others can go in to the rooms.

So far, 44 Hoosiers have died.
