Borders and Dumfries and Galloway norovirus ward closures continue

Two wards remain closed at the Borders General Hospital and Dumfries Infirmary more than a week after norovirus outbreaks were confirmed.

Ward 10 for elderly patients is still shut to admissions at the facility near Melrose and two bays in Ward 12 and one in Ward 4 are also affected.

In Dumfries, Ward 18 is also closed and members of the public have been advised not to visit.

Both health boards said that infection control measures were ongoing.
