Norovirus confirmed at Altnagelvin hospital

Altnagelvin Hospital last night revealed they had seen an increase in the number of vomiting and diarrohea cases in older people and asked visitors who are feeling unwell to stay away.

Norovirus has been confirmed in a number of patients and Ward 20 has been temporarily closed to new admissions. People are asked not to visit Altnagelvin Hospital if they have been feeling unwell and, if visiting, to cooperate with the clinical staff by respecting visiting times and visiting restrictions in place to assist in reducing infection.
