On April 6, 2023, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced changes to the COVID-19 guidance for health care settings. This change included an end to universal masking.
To protect our clinically vulnerable patients, we will continue to make masks available at the entrances to our hospital. We may also require masks in some areas of our hospital.
Please consider wearing a mask if you have any cold or flu symptoms and please stay home if you are feeling unwell. We ask that you please continue to clean your hands at the hospital entrance and throughout your visit.
There will still be some situations where masks will be required in health-care settings or situations where they have always been required to protect high-risk patients against respiratory transmitted infections and protect workers against high-risk exposure to infectious diseases.
Thank you for your patience as we work to make these changes.
