Brookside Open for Visitors
Late last month Managers at Brookside Rehabilitation and Care, in Burnsville, notified the Health Department of an illness making people sick. When test that were submitted to the state lab verified the disease was norovirus, Brookside then closed its doors to visitors, and restricted the residents from leaving the facility. Yesterday afternoon at 2pm the ban was lifted and visitation is back to normal. As in all public places, Brookside reminds the public to use good hand washing hygiene.
