West Moreton Health staff in isolation after virus scare
ELEVEN West Moreton Health staff have been isolated as a precaution, after they came into contact with a person later confirmed to have coronavirus.
West Moreton Health took to social media this afternoon to reassure the public that it was safe to visit the Ipswich Hospital.
"Please do not be concerned about coming to Ipswich Hospital for any appointments including if you need to go to the Emergency Department," the post said.
"We are practising rigorous infection control and prevention."
A contractor who carried out maintenance work at a pathology lab at Ipswich Hospital later tested positive to coronavirus.
West Moreton Health confirmed the 11 staff were well and said hospital services were not affected and no members of the public were at risk.
