Family and loved ones play an essential role in the emotional, physical and mental well-being of our patients. We continue to work to support visitation appropriate to the ongoing pandemic situation in our region. We have regularly revisited our visitation guidelines, since April, and adjusted them to reflect the current evidence around COVID-19 transmission, Public Health recommendations and internal infection control risks.
