Wards at Geriatric Hospital off-limits due to respiratory illness

Foot traffic in terms of visitors at the Geriatric Hospital has been halted for the safety of patients and clients.

This news was disclosed by the Government Information Service this evening, December 5, 2019.

The temporary restriction is due to an outbreak of respiratory illness at the Geriatric Hospital, Beckles Road, St Michael. This has forced the temporary restriction of visitors to the hospital until further notice.

Effective Friday, December 6, no visitors will be allowed on Wards 6B, 7B, 8B, 9B and 10B. The day care programme will also be suspended on that date, until further notice. 

Management of the Geriatric Hospital is assuring that the public will be notified as soon as visiting hours are restored and the day care service reopened.
