AN OUTBREAK OF influenza has forced Beaumont Hospital to impose visiting restrictions.

The hospital, as well as St Joseph’s Hospital in Raheny, have both put in place what they are calling “preventative measures”.

A statement from Beaumont says that children should not be brought to the hospital, that only one visitor is allowed per patient and that visiting will only take place between 6pm and 8pm.

“Visitors must not visit if they have had flu‐like symptoms, vomiting or diarrhoea within the past week.

“Beaumont Hospital is appealing to the public for their support in observing these restrictions for the common good. The hospital would like to acknowledge the co-operation and support of the public.”
