(Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL) Labrador-Grenfell Health is advising the public that visitor restrictions have been lifted at the Long-Term Care Unit, Labrador Health Centre in Happy Valley-Goose Bay; however, restrictions remain in effect in the Protective Care Unit of the facility.


Visitor restrictions were imposed on May 2, 2019 due to the presence of influenza-like illness.


The public is asked not to visit the long-term care unit if they feel ill or are experiencing flu-like symptoms. For infection prevention, the public is strongly encouraged to wash their hands frequently, cover their coughs or sneezes with a tissue or the crook of their arms, and refrain from touching their faces.
