Everyone entering Halton Healthcare must wear a mask. If you arrive without a mask, we will provide an appropriate mask. If you arrive wearing a cloth or disposable mask from home, screening staff may give you a fresh medical mask to wear instead.

Mask Use at Our Hospitals

Masking continues in our hospitals as part of our enhanced infection prevention efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to our patients and team members.

As the provincial government proceeds with its plan to lift COVID-19 restrictions, vaccines, masks and physical distancing continue to be important measures to keep everyone safe in our hospitals. Halton Healthcare has a responsibility to ensure that our facilities remain as safe as possible for the vulnerable patient populations and immunocompromised individuals that we serve.

Information for Visitors, Outpatients and Inpatients

Visitors and Outpatients

By ensuring our visitors are masked, practicing physical distancing and performing proper hand hygiene, we are doing everything we can to reduce the chance of transmission while still allowing people to safely visit their loved ones. More information is available on Visiting & Connecting with a Patient.

For Your Safety When Visiting:
  • Face masks must be worn at all times
  • ensure minimal mask removal, please only eat in designated areas, not in any waiting or patient care areas, including patient rooms.

Inpatients

All patients inside their rooms do not need to wear their mask. Once outside your patient room, you must wear a mask at all times.
