Patients are now able to have one visitor a day between 11am and 2pm OR 4pm and 7pm. Exceptions apply. Please click on the ‘In Person Visiting’ tab for more details. If you are not able to visit in person, please consider a virtual visit with your loved one.
Halton Healthcare is taking a gradual approach to reintroducing people into our hospitals that will keep everyone safe. This process is reviewed regularly. Restricted Visiting is still in effect at our hospitals, with some exceptions for specific patient populations.
Important Information for Visits:
- One visitor per patient per day during designated times (some exceptions apply)
- Everyone is required to go through active screening and enter through a designated Visitor entrance
- OTMH – Level 1 Parking Garage Entrance

- GH – South Entrance (ED Entrance for after-hours)
- Visitors are required to sign in and out at the screening desk
- A ‘Visitor’ ID sticker will be provided and must be worn and visible at all times
- Clean your hands frequently and avoid touching surfaces
- Face coverings should be worn by all visitors
- Visitors must only visit their patient
- Visitors are asked to stay in the patient room for the duration of their visit

- Visitors must use public washrooms. Please speak with a member of the care team for direction on the closest public washroom
- Patients must not be taken outside of the hospital (outdoor courtyards connected to the unit are permitted, if accessible)
Bringing Food for Patients
- Food that is temperature sensitive (hot or cold), such as milk, yogurt or meat, should be offered to the patient during the course of your visit and must be removed from the patient room at the end of your visit, as they cannot be safely stored for the patient (note: microwaves and fridges are not available at this time).
- Nonperishable food items, such as crackers, cookies or chips can be left with the patient at their bedside at anytime.
If you have any questions, please speak with a member of the healthcare team.
