VISITING restrictions have finally been lifted, for most wards, at Letterkenny University Hospital (LUH).
These were put in place on Monday in an effort to contain and eradicate the Norovirus, ‘winter vomiting’ bug.
All wards, except for Surgical 2, are now open for normal visiting.
Visitors are asked, however, to be vigilant with hand hygiene when attending the hospital and to follow the standard visiting guidelines.
Anyone experiencing vomiting and/or diarrhoea at home should not visit the hospital.
Hospital management would like to thank the general public for their co-operation.
Mr O’Rourke, who earns around €185,000 a year, has been working in Letterkenny for the past twenty-one years.
