QHC’s Care Partner and Visiting Policy is switching to Phase 2 (yellow) – effective Wednesday, February 10
In light of our community’s success in bringing COVID-19 rates down, and the provincial announcement that Hastings Prince Edward is moving back to "Green-Prevent" in the COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open, we feel that now is the appropriate time to move back to PHASE 2 (yellow) of our care partner and visiting policy, effective Wednesday, February 10.
This change will enable care partners more opportunity to come to our hospitals and be with their loved ones while the risk of community spread is relatively low.
We will continue to only allow entry to care partners and visitors residing in the following public health units: Hastings and Prince Edward; Peterborough; Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge; Renfrew County and District; and Kingston Frontenac and Lennox & Addington (exceptions may be made for patients at end-of-life, provided all other screening criteria is met).
