Visitors with Norovirus cause Lister wards to close to new admissions

Friends and relatives of patients at the Lister hospital appear to be unaware of, or ignoring, advice when it comes to Norovirus, which is also known more commonly as the winter vomiting bug.  People with this contagious, although self-limiting, infection appear to be still visiting the Lister and thus spreading the infection to patients and staff.  This in turn is leading to affected areas being closed to new admissions, which is adding hugely to the pressures being faced the Lister and its staff at the moment.
