Visiting restrictions have now been lifted at the RUH. However, norovirus is still prevalent in the community so it's important we do what we can to keep it out of the hospital environment. Visitors can help by using the hand gel on entering and leaving wards, not sitting on beds, and keeping contact with surfaces to a minimum. Hand washing is also the best way to keep norovirus from spreading, so we ask that all visitors wash their hands carefully after eating or using our facilities. We'd also like to thank patients and visitors for their patience and understanding throughout the recent outbreak.
We continue to have wards closed due to Norovirus. Norovirus is still prevalent in the wider community and we are taking necessary precautions to prevent the spread of infection. We continue to urge members of the public to stay away from the hospital unless their visit is absolutely necessary. We would like to thank everyone who has deferred their visit during this period of restricted visiting. The sooner the virus is contained, the sooner we can re-open wards and reinstate full visiting.
