Ocean Views has had to close to visitors due to a number of patients and staff testing positive for Covid.
The Government says these are precautionary measures with patient and public wellbeing in mind.
The Bella Vista Day Centre will also close as from Monday due to the rising positive cases in the community.
The Government says the decision has been taken by clinical professionals and Public Health advice to ensure the service users are protected against a potential outbreak within the establishment.
All efforts are being made to ensure relatives of patients at Ocean Views are kept up to date and in contact with patients. Anyone requiring further information in respect of relatives can call 20078807 and ask to be put through to the relevant ward.
The Bella Vista Outreach service will be reinforced to increase support to the service users in the community.
