Visiting restrictions have been introduced at University Hospital Limerick due to an outbreak of the winter vomiting bug.

In a statement, the HSE confirmed that a number of cases of Norovirus have been confirmed and that the restrictions have been put in place in the interests of patient care.

“Visiting to all wards at the hospital is limited to one person per patient. However, it is not recommended that children be allowed visit any patients at this time,” said a HSE spokesperson.

Management at UHL say they regret any inconvenience caused by the restrictions which will remain in place throughout the weekend.

Any queries regarding visiting should be made to the ward directly.
