COVID-19 Update

 

 

September 23, 2022 - Changes to COVID-19 Visiting Restrictions Effective Immediately

Throughout the pandemic, our Leadership Team continued to follow the directions of the Ministry of Health and Lambton Public Health to ensure the safety of our residents, visitors, staff, and volunteers. We are very thankful that our community has continued to support us as we support them through their family’s end-of-life journey.

On August 30, 2022, the Ministry of Health announced revised recommendations to the COVID restrictions as it pertains to congregate settings.

 

We are pleased to share the following changes regarding our visitors’ policy:

 

  • Visitors to Hospice will continue to wear a medical-grade mask on arrival at the Residence

 

  • You will be asked screening questions daily upon entering the Residence

 

  • Although we continue to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations to protect you and your loved ones from serious illness, you will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination

 

  • Testing for unvaccinated visitors will no longer be in effect

 

  • Masking is no longer necessary in outdoor spaces at Hospice

 

  • There are no restrictions to the number of visitors for each resident

Should you have further questions regarding our visiting restrictions, please contact:
