THE Countess of Chester Hospital has put in place further infection control measures to keep the winter vomiting virus contained.
A spokesman said: “To help us protect our patients we have implemented strict infection control measures in three wards used for cardio, gastro and orthopaedics (42, 33 and 47).
“No visitors are allowed except by prior arrangement with the nurse in charge.
“To further aid infection control measures the hospital is asking visitors to other wards to keep visits to a minimum and only visit when necessary. Children should not be brought in to visit patients.”
