Strict visiting restrictions in place at Sligo University Hospital

Visiting restrictions are still in place at Shannonside hospital after a number of vomiting bug cases.

Sligo University Hospital released a statement on Friday warning visitors and patients to avoid the hospital.

Visitors will only be accepted in end-of-life situations or “exceptional circumstances” with the ward manager’s approval ahead of time.


It’s hoped the restriction will protect the welfare of both visitors and vulnerable patients.

The ban lasts throughout the rest of the weekend.
