Eastern Health has restricted visitors to immediate family members only at the Blue Crest Nursing Home in Grand Bank.
The move is in response to an increase in respiratory illness among residents at the home.
Immediate family members are asked to call the home directly at (709) 832-1660 for further direction on visitation.
Eastern Health urges members of the public not to visit any health care facility if they feel ill or are experiencing flu-like or gastrointestinal symptoms. People are also reminded to practice basic infection prevention — wash hands frequently; cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or the crook of an arm and refrain from touching their faces.
All restrictions at Blue Crest will remain in effect until further notice. Eastern Health apologizes for any inconvenience.
