A ban on visitors at Letterkenny University Hospital has been confirmed following a Covid-19 outbreak.

Access to visiting is solely limited to compassionate grounds. These visits are to be pre-arranged with the nurse manager on the relevant ward.

Patients have been advised of the situation and will be kept updated on any changes.

There are separate arrangements in place for access to the maternity department for nominated support partners.

“People who have outpatient or other appointments at the hospital are advised to attend their appointment unless contacted by a member of staff from the hospital and told otherwise,” a spokesperson for the Salt University Health Group said

“Anyone coming to the hospital for an appointment must wear a face mask and use hand gel regularly.

“People should come to their appointments no earlier than ten minutes before the allotted time and come alone, unless the support of another person is essential.

“People with Covid-19 symptoms should call the number on their appointment letter to rearrange their appointment."
