Miramichi Regional Hospital lifts visitor restrictions

The Miramichi Regional Health Authority would like to advise the community that it has now lifted its visiting restrictions to the Miramichi Regional Hospital affective immediately. The situation will continue to be monitored. Visiting has been restricted at the hospital since November 28 to prevent the spread of norovirus within the hospital.

Normal visiting hours will resume and will be strictly enforced by hospital personnel. Visitors are encouraged to verify the nursing unit’s specific visiting hours before coming to the hospital.

Members of the public are reminded that anyone experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms such as runny nose, fever, cough, diarrhea and/or vomiting should not visit any hospital patients.

The best preventive measure to stop the spread of this virus is to use good hygiene, particularly proper hand washing.
