Eastern Health says that public visitation at the Salvation Army Glenbrook Lodge in St. John's is restricted to immediate family members only due to an increase in respiratory illness.
The public is reminded 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.
Finally, those seeking the flu shot should contact their physician or community health office.
The above restrictions will remain in effect until further notice.
