Eastern Health facilities currently restricted to immediate family only.

Eastern Health advises the public that the visitor restrictions recently implemented at the Carbonear General Hospital and the Waterford Hospital in St. John’s have now been lifted.

Both facilities recently restricted visitation to immediate family members only due to an increase in influenza and influenza-like illness.

The public is asked not to visit any health-care facility if they feel ill or are experiencing flu-like or gastrointestinal symptoms.

For infection prevention, the public is advised to wash their hands frequently, cover their coughs or sneezes with a tissue or the crook of their arms and refrain from touching their faces.

Those still seeking the flu shot should contact their physician or community health office.

Organizations: Carbonear General Hospital, Waterford Hospital
