Background

  • The situation is isolated to the hospital and there is currently no indication of wider community transmission, but we, alongside our partners in the community, will continue to carefully monitor the situation.
  • We continue to follow all relevant infection prevention and control guidelines.
  • Visiting has been restricted in some areas, to be lifted as soon as clinicians are confident that it is safe for patients and staff.
  • The Trust will continue to provide hospital-grade surgical masks at the entrances to our hospitals, and will ask that all visitors wear one throughout their time on site.
