Northern Health is advising Prince George residents that gastrointestinal illness is circulating in the community and affecting staff and patients at the University Hospital of Northern B.C.
Northern Health asks that visits to patients of UHNBC be avoided. If the situation is urgent and visitors feel they must enter the hospital, please ensure you are feeling well. Officials urge visitors with recent GI symptoms not visit patients until they have been symptom-free for at least 48 hours.
The best protection against GI is good prevention, especially with vulnerable populations such as seniors and young infants.
