Separate toilets for people with diarrhoea & vomiting

We now have 9 residents who have told us they are unwell with diarrhoea and/or vomiting. The true number is likely to be higher and some may have already contracted the illness but not developed symptoms yet.

To help prevent the spread of infection, s
ome bathrooms have been designated for the exclusive use of people who are unwell, and some for the exclusive use of people who have not been unwell for at least 48 hours. 


If you're unwell (or have been within 48 hours), only use bathrooms with a yellow triangle. 















If you are well (and haven't been unwell in the last 48 hours), only use bathrooms with a green tick.


And always... wash your hands!
