Norovirus – update: Friday 15 December

We are pleased to say that all wards are now fully open.

This is thanks to the hard work and diligence of staff, patients and visitors who have delayed visits and vigilantly washed their hands with soap and water.

Norovirus continues to circulate in communities across Somerset, with cases reported very locally, so please continue to follow the guidelines and wash your hands with soap and water. Remember, alcohol gel does not work against norovirus.

If you’ve had vomiting or diarrhoea do not visit the hospital until you’ve been clear of both for 3 days (72 hours).
