Limited visitation precautions expanded at Lakeside Homes in Gander
Due to additional cases of respiratory illness (Influenza-like illness) at Lakeside Homes in Gander, limited visitation precautions announced for the Nursing Care Unit on February 28th have been expanded to all areas of this facility.
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 visitor precautions do not apply to people visiting palliative care residents.
All visitors to Central Health facilities are reminded to wash their hands after arriving and before leaving the 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).
