Winter vomiting bug confirmed in Letterkenny General

Visiting has been suspended to Letterkenny General Hospital's Medical Wards 2 and 3 due to the presence of the winter vomiting bug.

Management is advising that, in exceptional circumstances, people should telephone the wards to make arrangements for next-of-kin only.

All visitors to other wards in the hospital are asked to wash their hands prior to coming into the hospital, and no children are currently allowed to visit.

Anyone with symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting should not visit the hospital under any circumstances.
