Visitor restrictions at health centre
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.
