Elliot Lake St. Joseph’s General Hospital has closed its St. Joseph’s Manor to visitors following an outbreak of acute respiratory illness.
Hospital CEO Jeremy Stevenson says the manor was closed to visitors as of last Friday, but all other areas of the organization will remain open for regular services.
He would like to remind everyone there are several measures you can take to protect yourself and others from contracting illness including staying home if not feeling well and wash your hands regularly.
He adds for more information on Acute Respiratory Illness, contact Algoma Public Health or your health care provider.
