Important Update on COVID-19

Visitors

As per the Chief Medical Officer of Health, only essential visitors will be allowed to visit our Long-Term Care Homes.  As such, we are also restricting visitors to our hospitals to protect our patients. The ministry is identifying essential visitors as those who have a Patient/Resident who is dying or very ill or a parent/guardian of an ill child or youth in a live-in treatment setting.

Screening at main entrances

All outpatients will be screened.

Clinics/outpatient services

Some of our outpatient services could be impacted. You will be notified if your appointment is deferred or cancelled.

If you are experiencing fever, cough or shortness of breath and have concerns, please notify the Porcupine Health Unit (1-800-461-1818) or Telehealth Ontario (1-866-797-0000) for guidance.
