Multiple ambulances have responded to Exeter Hospital after a "mass casualty incident" was declared involving more than 20 patients.

Two sections of Exeter Hospital were evacuated Friday after 19 staff members reported flu-like symptoms in the inpatient operating room, a hospital official said.

An estimated 12 staff were transported to other hospitals while others were treated and released, Exeter Assistant Fire Chief Eric Wilking told the Union Leader newspaper.

As of 4 p.m., police, fire, and public health officials were still investigating the incident, hospital spokeswoman Debra Vasapolli said.

Kargman was the one to come up with the new idea, and she later teamed up with Meyers and NBC . Herman was married to Grandpa's daughter Lily, played by Yvonne De Carlo.

Aerial footage from the scene showed more than a dozen people in beds set up in a cordoned-off area of the lawn across the parking lot from the hospital.

A cause had yet to be determined, she said.

Vasapolli said it's unknown whether any surgeries had been in progress at the time and had to be stopped.

Vasapolli said all affected staff members have either been released or transferred to other hospitals.
