Visitor Restrictions Lifted on Active Care Unit at Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital

Visitor restrictions are now lifted on 2 East & West, an active care unit at Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital in Inverness. The restrictions were put in place last week to help limit the spread of a gastrointestinal illness among patients on the unit.

Although the restrictions have been lifted, people are asked to use caution when they visit the unit or any hospitals, community health centres and continuing care facilities.

People should not visit if they or other people in their households are sick. Anyone who does visit should always thoroughly clean their hands before and after they visit a patient or a resident.

Nova Scotia Health Authority thanks the public for its cooperation while the visitor restrictions were in place.
