In a post on its Facebook page, the Swindon hospital has confirmed that it has 'some' patients currently in the hospital who have tested positive for Norovirus
It is also still dealing with Covid-19 and is currently experiencing an increased number of patients battling the illness.
As a result, it has urged anyone visiting the building to take precautions in order to help stop the spread of these viral infections.
A spokesperson said: "We would remind any patients and visitors planning to come to the hospital that you must wear a face mask at all times in clinical areas, unless you are medically exempt.
"You must also ensure you are regularly washing your hands, and use the hand gel that is provided at the entrance and exit to every ward and department, as well as in the main Atrium."
The hospital has also asked anyone who thinks they might be coming down with norovirus to stay away.
"If you have any symptoms of Norovirus, please do not come to the hospital unless it is an emergency," it said.
