Durham VA Hospital Now Taking Patients

Posted February 22, 2007

— Patients are welcome at Durham's VA hospital again.

The hospital is accepting new patients for the first time since a Norovirus outbreak. The virus hit patients and staff last week.

The hospital diverted new patients and placed restrictions on visitors to prevent the virus from spreading.

To prevent a new outbreak, officials said some of those restrictions are still in place.
