Wards reopening after norovirus strike

The spread of norovirus, which led to the closure of two hospital wards and a mental health facility in the Island, has been brought under control.

Wards 9 and 20 at Noble's and Grianagh Court were closed at the end of last week due to an outbreak of the gastroenteritis strain.

Since then health staff have been carrying out strict procedures to reduce the spread of the virus.

Grianagh Court completely reopened yesterday evening, ward 20 is due to admit patients again at some point today, while ward 9 should open by Friday evening - provided there are no new cases.
