QHC’s Care Partner and Visiting Policy is switching to Phase 1 (green) – effective Wednesday, June 30
In light of low community prevalence of COVID-19 and the province’s move to Step 2 of Ontario’s reopening plan, we feel that now is the appropriate time to move to PHASE 1 (green) of our care partner and visiting policy, effective Wednesday, June 30. This will enable care partners more opportunity to come in and be with their loved ones, while still maintaining moderate restrictions to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and community.
Our COVID-19 precautions apply to everyone who enters our hospitals, regardless of vaccination status. The vaccine is an additional way to protect yourself against COVID-19 but not everyone within our hospitals has been fully vaccinated, including some vulnerable populations. We require you to continue to wear a mask at all times (provided by the hospital), practice physical distancing and wash your hands frequently. Thank you.
