An outbreak of a gastrointestinal illness has been declared at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital.
The hospital is requesting that family members and visitors who are not feeling well, or who may be experiencing fever, vomiting or diarrhoea not to visit the hospital. The hospital says that this is a precautionary measure to protect the health of their patients. The hospital is restricting visitors to 2 East, except in extenuating circumstances.
The hospital thanks the public for their understanding and compliance during this time.
A gastrointestinal illness broke out in Kenora’s hospital last November, which lasted for six days.
