Palmerston North Hospital visiting ban lifted

9:06 am on 7 July 2009

MidCentral Health District Health Board says appears the outbreak, which closed several wards, is coming under control.

Although the board is reinstating visiting hours between 2pm and 8pm, it is asking people not to visit if they are unwell, especially with gastroenteritis or any flu-like illness.

Visitors will also be required to use hand hygiene stations at the hospital.
