As part of the provincially-coordinated approach to preventing the spread of COVID-19, we are taking appropriate measures to protect staff and patients.

NEW - New guidelines for hospital visitors
Effective June 8, 2020, Care teams will work together with patients and family members to consider individual circumstances, in accordance with the new provincial guidelines. Most patients staying in hospital (inpatients) will be eligible to identify one designated support person who may visit daily, with appropriate considerations and precautions in place. All visitors will be screened prior to entry. Click here for detailed information for visitors
People who have travelled, have any symptoms, or who have been exposed to COVID-19 within the last 14 days are not permitted to visit. Visitors are NOT allowed in outpatient care areas (day surgery, ambulatory care, emergency department, dialysis, obstetrical triage, diagnostic imaging or laboratory services). Escorts will be allowed for special circumstances on a case-by-case basis.
