Lugg Ward at Hereford County Hospital has been closed to admissions and visitors after a number of patients tested positive for coronavirus.


A spokesperson for Wye Valley Trust confirmed the news and said;



“Lugg Ward at Hereford County Hospital is closed to admissions and visitors due to increased inpatient cases of Covid-19,” 

“These patients are being cared for in isolation and Covid-19 testing for all inpatients on this ward has been carried out. The trust has also undertaken testing of relevant staff as a precautionary measure and visitor contact tracing.”

“Patient safety is paramount and the trust has stringent infection prevention and control measures in place to help minimise the transmission of this virus within its hospitals.

“The trust has tried and tested plans in place and our hospital is set up to care for coronavirus patients.

“All inpatients are tested for Covid-19 on admission to hospital and cared for in isolation if their test is positive.

“This testing is also undertaken during the hospital stay in line with national guidance and when patients need to be transferred to care homes or a community hospital.”
