Norovirus Outbreak NRGH & Dufferin Place

Family and friends asked not to visit during outbreak

Enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols are being used at NRGH to control a norovirus outbreak on the fourth floor of NRGH and a suspected outbreak at Dufferin Place.

While no visitor restrictions are being imposed, family and friends are being asked to refrain from visiting during the outbreak. If you have to visit, you should report to the nurses station for instructions on mask use and other precautions.

Symptoms of this nasty bug include nausea, chills, fever, cramping, vomiting and diarrhea and usually lasts one or two days. If you are experiencing these symptoms it is best to stay home to avoid spreading the virus.
