ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Newfoundland's largest health authority has imposed visitor restrictions on a nursing home, adding to a growing list of health facilities affected by an influenza-like virus.
Eastern Health says only immediate family members will be allowed to visit patients at the Blue Crest Nursing Home in Grand Bank.
Nearly 20 other health facilities have either been closed or are under visitor restrictions.
The health authority says people should not visit any health facility in the region if they feel ill or are experiencing flu-like or gastrointestinal symptoms.
