Three wards reopened

Three wards at Southland Hospital closed due to multiple Covid-19 exposures have reopened.

The Southern District Health Board said restrictions were tightened for the medical, surgical and rehabilitation wards from May 16-24 to protect vulnerable patients.

Though these wards were now open, some visiting restrictions remained.
