Three separate wards at Pilgrim Hospital have been closed off after ‘a number’ of patients and staff tested positive for COVID-19.
United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust, which runs the Boston hospital, says it believes the cases in wards that are not linked are connected.
A spokesman said: “We have a number of patients and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston across three separate wards, and on each ward we believe the cases may be connected.
“Therefore, we have restricted admissions to the wards to ensure this is contained and does not impact on other staff, patients or services.
“Anyone with an appointment at the hospital should attend as previously arranged. If you are concerned please contact the relevant department.”
