Hospital clear of norovirus

All wards are now open and functioning normally at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary following an outbreak of norovirus.

Elaine Ross, Infection Control Manager said: “I would like to thank all our staff and visitors for their continued cooperation and support during the outbreak. I would particularly like to thank Nursing and Domestic staff for working flexibly to allow the service to get back to normal as quickly as possible.

“As always we would urge anyone experiencing symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea or anyone who has had contact with someone with the symptoms not to visit any hospital setting for at least 72 hours.”
