Effective Tuesday, January 19, 2021 patients will not be able to have visitors.

In light of the provincial government’s stay-at-home-order and increasing COVID-19 cases in our community, we have made the difficult decision to suspend general visiting at our hospitals. This decision has not been taken lightly and will be reviewed regularly.

We appreciate everyone’s support in limiting the number of people in our hospitals and doing everything we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you believe you qualify for a visiting exception, please speak with a member of the healthcare team.
