The ACT Chief Health Officer, Dr Paul Kelly has today deactivated emergency response protocols at Canberra Hospital and Calvary Hospital following Canberra’s salmonella outbreak.

“The Health Emergency Control Centre (HECC) will be stood down as of 1600, 15 May 2013 and Canberra Hospital and Calvary Hospital will stand down their respective Code Brown emergency plans as well,” Dr Kelly said.
