Cambridge Memorial Hospital is limiting visitor access to one of its units after an enteric outbreak was declared by Region of Waterloo Public Health.
The outbreak was declared on Nov. 30 and is contained to the Medicine A Unit in wing B on level four of the hospital, and has affected patients in that unit.

This is the second enteric outbreak at Cambridge Memorial Hospital since September.
"Cleaning and disinfection of the environment has been enhanced in this area, and precautions have been implemented for staff and volunteers," said Cambridge Memorial Hospital in a news release.
