THUNDER BAY – HEALTH –  Officials at the Health Unit and Grandview Lodge, located at 200 Lillie Street N. in Thunder Bay have expanded the outbreak of gastrointestinal illness to include the entire facility.

Admissions, transfers, discharges and social activities have been cancelled on all units until further notice. Visitors are restricted to family members and caregivers only, so please call the facility for more information.

The Health Unit is urging people to stay at home and refrain from visiting hospitals, long-term care facilities and retirement homes when feeling unwell to avoid spreading infections to those most vulnerable: young infants and children, the elderly and those with other chronic illnesses.

Washing hands often, for at least 15 seconds with soap and warm water, or by using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
