A Highland hospital ward affected by the latest outbreak of the winter vomiting virus has reopened, but another at Raigmore in Inverness remains closed as a precaution.
Ward 7C has reopened following a period of closure due to diarrhoea and vomiting.
The medical ward, which was closed to new admissions and visitors on February 22 because of the norovirus outbreak, was able to reopen after a deep clean. It is now fully operational.
A total of 22 patients were affected on the ward during the outbreak.
Ward 2A remains closed to new admissions and visiting is suspended due to norovirus.
Norovirus spreads in the air where someone has had diarrhoea or vomited, and is extremely infectious.
NHS Highland says it is important that everyone plays their part in reducing outbreak risks.
People can help minimise the spread by following some simple rules:
Do not visit a hospital if you or someone you live with has symptoms.
If you have a hospital appointment, please get in touch and, where appropriate, your appointment can be rescheduled.
Wait until you have been clear of symptoms for 72 hours, as you may still be contagious, even if you feel well.
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, especially after using the toilet and before eating.
If you visit someone in hospital do not sit on their bed and keep the number of visitors to a minimum at any one time. And never touch dressings, drips, or other equipment around the bed.
