According to KSLA, all of the hospitals in Shreveport are on diversion.

As someone who has no idea what certain phrases in the medical field means- this sounds terrifying. But don't let the word "diversion" scare you.

Jasmine Payoute of KSLA explains that diversion is where the "administration has informed its emergency medical services that the hospital is full." That being said, they can't take in new patients.

Since the flu is roaring through the Shreveport/ Bossier City area take extra precaution! That means wash your hands, and be careful about being around anyone feeling sick.
