Visitor access to a number of wards at the Geriatric Hospital will continue to be restricted until further notice, as a result of an outbreak of respiratory illness at the Beckles Road, St. Michael institution.
Management said today that while the outbreak has been contained and all the affected clients were stable and recovering well, no visitors were being allowed on Wards 6A to 10A and Wards 6B to 10B. The day care programme is also suspended.
The public will be notified as soon as visiting hours are restored and the day care service reopened. Management at the Geriatric Hospital apologizes for any inconvenience these restrictions may cause.
