According to a news release, the restrictions — related to the presence of an influenza-like illness — applies to both Raspberry Road and the protective care unit on Blueberry Crescent.
The regional health authority said exceptions may be made in the case of extenuating circumstances for immediate family members. They are asked to contact the facility before attempting to visit.
