"There are still confirmed cases of norovirus in wards at Borders General Hospital, Kelso and Hawick Community Hospitals, however the situation is improving.

Please remember, the advice is always to stay away from any hospital ward if you or anyone in your family has experienced symptoms of diarrhoea and/or vomiting in the past 48 hours.

Thank you for your co-operation."
