Hereford County Hospital ward visitor ban

A ward at Hereford County Hospital has been closed to visitors after an outbreak of vomiting and diarrhoea.

Wye Valley NHS Trust said no visitors were allowed to Wye Ward as a preventative measure until the outbreak starts clearing up.

It is unclear when the ban will be lifted and visitors must only come to the hospital if they really need to, the trust said.

Visitors to other areas of the hospital are asked to maintain good hygiene.
