Restrictions on visitors as outbreak spreads at Hampshire hospitals

Daily Echo: Sickness bug hits hospitals Sickness bug hits hospitals

WARDS at three major Hampshire hospitals have restricted their visiting hours after an outbreak of a sickness bug.

Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, Andover War Memorial Hospital, and Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital have all been forced to restrict visitors from entering the hospital for just one hour of the day after cases of sickness and diarrhoea were reported.

Visitors are able to see loved-ones between 6.30pm and 7.30pm but children and the elderly are not advised to visit at all.

Anyone who has experienced flu-like symptoms or diarrhoea and vomiting are asked to avoid coming to the hospital completely.
