Belford issues Norovirus warning

MANAGEMENT at the Belford Hospital are asking people who have had symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting to stay away from the hospital to prevent norovirus spreading to patients and staff.

People are being asked to only visit the Fort William hospital if absolutely necessary due to a high prevalence of norovirus in the local community.

Anne Boyd-Mackay, rural general hospital manager, said: ‘We know norovirus is circulating in the community so we are taking every precaution and asking people who have had symptoms, or have been in close contact with anyone with symptoms, to restrict visiting unless absolutely necessary. We are requesting that visiting is strictly limited to emergency only but our staff will be more than happy to talk to visitors by phone.’
