The norovirus outbreak at Lincoln County Hospital has now been officially declared as over.
Although it is now over, norovirus continues to circulate in the community and the hospital is still experiencing a number of cases of patients admitted to the hospital who are incubating the infection.
The number of visitors per patient is limited to a maximum of two per bed, in all but exceptional circumstances. Children aged 5 years and under should not visit the hospital.
If you have norovirus symptoms or have had them in the past 72 hours, do not attend A&E or visit the hospital.
“It is testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff that we are able to declare this outbreak over. Many of them have gone above and beyond what is normally required of them to ensure disruption to the hospital is minimised and ensuring patient safety and care is not compromised.
“I’d like to thank the public too. In staying away from our wards and A&E they have helped us cope and keep disruptions to a minimum. But we still need their support. Visiting restrictions remain in place in order to limit the spread of the virus and to protect our vulnerable patients and our staff.”
