An outbreak of the flu at a seniors' home in Clarke's Beach means it is now closed to visitors.

Eastern Health says there is an increase in influenza illness at the Pentecostal Senior Citizens Home.

They ask immediate family members requiring any further information to call (709) 786-2993.

On Saturday, the health authority put limitations on visitors due to an increase in respiratory illness.

The home will be closed to all family and visitors until further notice.
