Public Health Measures

We have implemented a series of public health measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

For example, we have reduced seating in our cafeterias, established entry and access points to our sites, and increased cleaning of spaces and particularly, of touchable surfaces, such parking pay stations.

Your role in infection prevention

  • Please wash your hands or use the alcohol-based sanitizers located throughout the sites.
  • Physical distancing (two metres/six feet) is required in the waiting areas and all common spaces throughout our hospitals or sites.
  • The provided mask is required to be worn throughout the duration of your time in our facility. This is a necessary precaution to keep people safe while in our health-care facilities.

Other things you can do to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Stay informed, be prepared and follow Public Health advice;
  • Wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds;
  • Use an alcohol based hand sanitizer in the absence of soap and water;
  • Do not touch your face;
  • Practice proper cough and sneeze etiquette;
  • Wear a non-medical mask in public indoor spaces;
  • Maintain physical distancing;
  • Increase cleanliness and ventilation of public spaces and worksites;
  • Work from home, if possible; and,
  • Stay home if you are sick and avoid contact with others.
