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:  

  • Complete COVID-19 screening online before entering.
  • Wear a mask at all times while inside the hospital.
  • Clean hands when entering or leaving spaces.
  • Practice physical distancing where possible.
  • No eating or drinking inside patient rooms and other areas not designated for food or drink consumption.
  • Be respectful.

Consistent with provincial direction for long-term care, masking will also continue to be mandatory in our Extended Care Unit at the Welland Site.
