Wards reopen after norovirus outbreak in IOM hospital

Two wards in Noble’s Hospital and one which is a mental health care facility (Grianagh Court), were closed at the end of last week due to an outbreak of norovirus.

The Department of Health said Grianagh Court has been completely re-opened yesterday evening; Ward 20 will re-open later today, and Ward 9 by tomorrow evening, providing there are no patients newly-diagnosed with norovirus.

The Department of Health would like to thank all visitors and patients for co-operating with the ward staff in implementing procedures to reduce the spread of the virus.
