A highly contagious virus outbreak in Christchurch hospitals looks to be nearly over.
The Norovirus scare led to the closure of wards at Princess Margaret, Christchurch and Burwood hospitals over a month ago.
The Canterbury District Health Board says it is finally subsiding. A spokeswoman says one ward is still on hold for admissions at Princess Margaret Hospital, while Christchurch Hospital wards are open, but with some rooms still in isolation.
