Meanwhile, staffing continues to be impacted amid high levels of the coronavirus within the community.

As of last Friday, Cree Ward was closed to new admissions, patient transfers, and routine inpatient visiting.

But health bosses said the situation will be reviewed regularly with an aim to open up admissions and visiting as early as possible.
