An outbreak of an infection at Oamaru Hospital has prompted a warning for the public to call ahead.

Staff and patients have had vomiting and diarrhoea symptoms since Monday and family visits have been restricted to try to curb the spread.

Hospital director of nursing Colleen Moore said while the infection hadn't yet been identified, patients were being asked to call in before heading to the hospital as a precaution.
