BEAUMONT HOSPITAL HAS extended its visiting ban over this weekend.
The general public are not allowed to visit patients in Beaumont and St Joseph’s Hospital Raheny in the continuing effort to prevent the spread of the winter vomiting bug, Norovirus.
The hospital urged members of the public who are symptomatic of Norovirus to seek medical advice from their local GP before presenting to its Emergency Department.
Visitor exemptions may be granted at ward level in exceptional circumstances only.
The hospital has cautioned against the risks of Norovirus to patients generally, and those with serious underlying medical conditions in particular.
