Normal visiting times have resumed at Warwick Hospital, following an outbreak of norovirus last week.

But South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT), which runs the hospital, is still stressing the importance of preventing infection while at the hospital.

Visitors are asked to consider their health before entering the hospital. Anyone who has had symptoms of norovirus - sickness and diarrhoea - within the last 48 hours or been in contact with anybody who has is asked to keep away to prevent the risk of patients catching the virus, which is highly contagious.

Those who do visit the hospital are asked to wash their hands at the basins provided before entering any wards, following the washing procedure in the notices on display.
