Niagara Health is maintaining our masking requirement for everyone inside our hospitals.
Starting today, Friday, June 3, Niagara Health visitor guidelines are increasing to allow two visitors at the bedside at one time for inpatient units, including Labour and Delivery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
We are experiencing growing pressures with patient volumes and staff and physician illness, resulting in the need to adjust our operations to ensure we can provide emergency, critical and acute care to our patients using the resources available to us.
As cases of COVID-19 increase in the hospital and in the community, it is important that we maintain a safe environment for staff, physicians, patients and families.
Hospitals care for ill and vulnerable people, and we must do everything possible to keep our patients, staff and physicians safe.
Niagara Health is consolidating its COVID-19 Assessment Centres and Clinic into one location. Services will close at the St. Catharines Site and move to the Niagara Falls Site.
