Visitor restrictions have been put in place at two wards at University Hospital Galway, due to a number of suspected cases of the vomiting bug.
The Saolta Hospital group has confirmed that visitor restrictions are in place on St Anthony’s ward and St Mary’s ward.
In order to assist staff in curtailing the spread of the Norovirus, management says only essential visiting should take place, and children should not visit the hospital as they may be particularly susceptible to the illness.
Visitors are asked to comply with the restrictions and use the hand gels supplied as they enter and leave the hospital.
Anyone in the community with symptoms of the virus should not visit the hospital, to avoid spreading the virus to vulnerable patients.
