AS of today (Thursday February 4) Broomfield Hospital remains closed to visitors in order to stop the spread of the winter vomiting bug, Norovirus.

The three wards, B4, B8 and B24 are still temporarily closed to all new admissions due to the virus.

A spokesman said: "The hospital, like many other hospitals countrywide, has been affected by the virus on several occasions over recent months and this decision has been taken to bring the situation under control."

The situation is still being reviewed on a daily basis. However, until the hospital is given the all clear, people are still being asked not to visit.
