Outbreak Status in Cypress Health Region
7 clients at the Western Citizens Home in Leader and 5 at the Prairie Health Care Centre in Cabri have tested positive for the Noro Virus. The Cypress health Region has placed both facilities under an Outbreak status, therefore no Visitors are allowed to either location until further notice.
The Noro Virus is an enteric illness which can cause one to become violently ill through a combination of vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps. The best prevention is to stay away from these facilities and avoid anyone that is ill with the virus and to always wash your hands after using the washroom.
