The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) is temporarily restricting visitors to Unit 8, the general medical and acute stroke unit, as a number of patients are experiencing symptoms of gastro-intestinal illness and influenza.
Health PEI confirms five cases of gastro-intestinal illness and five separate confirmed cases of influenza. Patients on the unit are being placed on precautions and staff have heightened infection control practices.
The situation will be reassessed Wednesday morning as more information becomes available. A further update will be provided at that time.
