A spokesperson for the local health board said: “Due to the infectious nature of this virus it can start abruptly and spread quickly throughout healthcare settings and local communities. This is why it is vital to play your part and help prevent the spread of infection.

“If you are feeling under the weather and have a cough, cold, sore throat, fever or stomach bug please wait until you are feeling better (and have been symptom-free for 48 hours) before visiting loved ones in hospital.”
