Please be advised that a visitation restriction is in place on Bakeapple Avenue (3 South), at Corner Brook Long Term Care Home. The visitation restriction is in place due to a number of residents with gastrointestinal illness.
To prevent the spread of infection in any institution in the Western Health region, we ask all visitors to wash/sanitize their hands when entering or leaving any of Western Health's facilities. As well, Western Health recommends that anyone experiencing gastrointestinal like symptoms including vomiting and/or diarrhea refrain from visiting any of our facilities until at least 48 hours after their last symptoms. To prevent the spread of contagious illnesses, Western Health recommends staying at home if you are unwell, avoid preparing food for others and thorough cleaning where people have been sick.
Western Health would like to thank families and visitors for their cooperation in helping prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
