Lakeshore General Hospital once again open to visitors

It’s business as usual at Lakeshore General Hospital, where an outbreak of gastroenteritis forced local health officials to ban hospital visitors for almost two weeks.

Sandrine Charpentier, a spokesperson for the CSSS de l’Ouest de l’Île, which oversees the hospital, said the visitor ban was lifted Friday, Nov. 30.

The ban had been brought in as a preventive measure on Nov. 19, after 30 patients came down with gastroenteritis, a highly contagious illness characterized by nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, stomach discomfort and diarrhea.
