Limited visitation precautions at Valley Vista Senior Citizen’s Home in Springdale - 26/03/2018

 

Due to cases of respiratory illness (Influenza-like illness) at Valley Vista Senior Citizen's Home in Springdale, limited visitation precautions are in place.

To help reduce the spread of respiratory illness, only one visitor at a time is permitted for each resident, and all visitors must be at least 14 years of age. These visitation precautions do not apply to people visiting palliative care residents.

All visitors to Central Health facilities are reminded to clean their hands after arriving and before leaving a facility.

If you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, please delay visiting any of our facilities until you're feeling better. All members of the public are encouraged to get their flu shot.

Central Health recognizes the importance of family and friend visits, and thanks you for your understanding and assistance in preventing the spread of this illness.

Updates on visitor precautions will be provided on Twitter (@CentralHealthNL).
