Help stop the spread


COVID-19 can be deadly. You can take actions to help stop the spread by getting your vaccine and following public health measures.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. The vaccine protects you and others.

Follow infection prevention and control guidelines inside the hospital

Every person inside the hospital must:  

  • Pass screening before coming inside.
  • Provide their information to support contact tracing.
  • Wear a mask at all times, even if you are fully vaccinated.
  • Clean your hands when you enter the building, during your stay and when you leave.
  • Maintain a safe physical distance of six feet (two metres) from others and follow the signs that limit the number of people in rooms, elevators and common areas.
  • Do not eat or drink while inside the hospital.
  • Bring only essential items for patients, no valuables or plants that are in soil.
  • Wear your identifying sticker in an easy-to-see spot. This shows that you passed COVID-19 screening and may go in and out of the hospital as needed.

See our guidelines to plan your visit with a patient.
