Closed Princess Elizabeth Hospital ward reopens

A Guernsey hospital ward which was closed to new patients due to an outbreak of a virus has reopened.

The Princess Elizabeth Hospital's private ward, Victoria Wing, closed on Monday as five patients and a member of staff were suffering from diarrhoea and vomiting.

A hospital spokesman said those patients still showing symptoms would remain in isolation for the weekend.

The closure caused 15 non-urgent, non-emergency operations to be postponed.
