Residential home closed to visitors

Southlands in Port Erin has closed its doors to visitors, for the time being.

There has been a small outbreak of the Noro, or winter vomiting, virus, and to stop it spreading the authorities have suspended visiting to the residential home.

The health advice remains the same - if you are suffering from vomiting and/or diarrhoea, do not visit care homes or the hospital until at least 48 hours after you have recovered.

The disease is self-limiting and symptoms subside in two to three days.
