Eastern Health is advising the public that visitation to the Salvation Army Glenbrook Lodge in St. John’s is restricted to one immediate family member due to an increase in Influenza-like illness.
Immediate family members should contact the site directly at (709) 726-1575 for further direction on visitation.
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, Eastern Health says people are also 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.
The visitor restrictions will remain in effect until further notice.
