Guidelines for hospital visitors
Effective until further notice

Preventing the spread of this virus within our facilities remains a central priority. The likelihood that COVID-19 will be a part of our “new normal” for a longer duration requires us to find a sustainable balance between preventative measures and the many benefits of interaction between patients and their support systems, including essential care partners and other visitors.

The visitor guidelines under code red have changed. Casual visits are not allowed unless one person is identified as an essential care partner. For inpatients, regardless of length of stay, visitors should not be permitted (whereas before if their stay was longer than 14 days, they were allowed one visitor).

NEW - Essential Care Partner and Visitor Guidelines - Provincial Response Level RED
All essential care partners must bring and wear a non-medical mask, pass the screening requirement, practice proper hand hygiene, and always maintain physical distancing. For detailed information, including Essential Care Partner definition, visitation exceptions and requirements, see Essential Care Partner and Visitor Guidelines - Provincial Response Level RED

Virtual visits: Loved ones are encouraged to keep in touch with patients through phone and video calls. As well, the HSC Well Wishes program is a free service which gives loved ones the opportunity to send adult patients a personalized greeting.

Patient belongings: Items must be disinfected upon arrival to the patient room (where possible). The items must be dedicated to the intended patient only, and not shared with other patients. Approved items include newspapers, cards, books, flowers, bedding, stuffed animals, magazines, puzzles. More information can be found in the COVID-19 Specific Disease Protocol (Winnipeg).

We are unable to support the transport of money from entry points to patient units. Debit or credit cards are accepted.
