Medical mask policy in effect during respiratory illness season

Masks are currently required in all patient care areas of hospitals, long-term care facilities and community health-care sites and clinics. Please do not enter these facilities if you have cold or flu-like symptoms, such as runny nose, sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath/trouble breathing, diarrhea or vomiting. Do not enter these facilities if you feel unwell, no matter how mild the symptoms. 

Visitors to long-term care and seniors’ assisting living facilities need to wear a medical mask in common areas and when participating in indoor events in common areas. 

Thank you for helping keep patients and staff healthy this season.

Through spiritual care and multifaith services, spiritual care practitioners help people address the profound thoughts and feelings that can poignantly arise at times of significant illness or trauma.

How to access

  • Referral

    Spiritual care practitioners visit most hospital units regularly and are available by referral to all units. Hospital staff may refer by telephone.

    Once the referral is made, the practitioner will follow up directly with the patient for their spiritual needs.
