Visiting restrictions have been put in place on C Ward at Mayo University Hospital following a number of suspected cases of Norovirus - the vomiting bug.

To assist staff in curtailing the spread of the virus, hospital management says it's imperative that only essential visits take place at this time, 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 to use the alcohol hand gels supplied as they enter and leave the hospital.

Hospital management says there has been an increase in the number of cases of Norovirus in the community and anyone with recent symptoms of the vomiting bug should not visit patients in the hospital, to avoid spreading the virus.
