Medical mask policy in effect during respiratory illness season
For essential winter health tips and guidance on where to get medical assistance, please visit our Winter Care page. During the respiratory illness season, a medical mask policy is in effect for all patient care areas in hospitals, long-term care and community health-care sites and clinics.
Visitors: If you exhibit any symptoms of cold or flu, or feel unwell, refrain from entering these facilities. Visitors to long-term care and senior assisted living facilities must wear medical masks in common areas.
Your cooperation is vital in maintaining the health of our patients and staff.
