Update: Norovirus restricts visiting at Norfolk and Norwich Hospital
Visitors' access to a Norwich hospital ward is still restricted to prevent an infectious sickness bug from spreading.
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (N&N), in Colney Lane, says it has had confirmed cases of norovirus among patients but there are currently no ward closures, however visiting to Elsing Ward is restricted, with people told to contact the ward first before they arrive.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in King's Lynn, has also confirmed it has no norovirus since earlier in the year, although warned 'it's only a matter of time' if it is widespread in the community.
A spokesman for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn said they have had no norovirus in the hospital.
And spokesman at the James Paget University Hospital said they are not affected at the moment and added that all wards were operating normally and with no restricted public access.
