Visitor restrictions lifted on rehabilitation and restorative care unit at Harbourview Hospital

Visitor restrictions are lifted on the rehabilitation and restorative care unit at Harbourview Hospital in Sydney Mines.

The restrictions were put in place earlier this month to help limit the spread of flu-like illness among patients on the 21-bed unit.

Although the restrictions have been lifted, people are asked to use caution when they visit the unit or any hospitals, community health centres and continuing care facilities.

People should not visit if they or other people in their households are sick. Anyone who does visit should always thoroughly clean their hands before and after they visit a patient or a resident.

Nova Scotia Health Authority thanks the public for its cooperation while the visitor restrictions were in place.
