Vis­i­tor re­stric­tions at health cen­tre

The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

East­ern Health has ad­vised the pub­lic vis­i­tor re­stric­tions have been im­ple­mented at the U.S. Me­mo­rial Health Care Cen­tre in St. Lawrence.

The health author­ity re­ported the re­stric­tion was brought about Thurs­day due to an in­crease in gas­troin­testi­nal ill­ness in the long term care fa­cil­ity.

Vis­i­tors are pro­hib­ited from vis­it­ing in all long term care units at the fa­cil­ity. Any ques­tions may be di­rected to the nurse in charge. Out­pa­tient ser­vices will con­tinue as sched­uled. The best way to pre­vent the spread of ill­ness as­so­ci­ated with di­ar­rhea and vom­it­ing is to wash your hands thor­oughly and fre­quently.

The health author­ity is re­quest­ing the gen­eral pub­lic’s co­op­er­a­tion and sup­port.
