York Hospital hoping to reopen wards
9:57am Friday 20th December 2013 in News
THE norovirus outbreak at York Hospital is easing and the situation is stabilising, hospital managers have said.
Five wards were closed this week after the winter vomiting virus hit the hospital and infection control measures were put in place to stop it spreading.
The wards all remain closed, a hospital spokesman said, but managers are hopeful that by the weekend they will be able to start reopening beds. Some operations are going ahead, but they are being prioritised.
