NBRHC Restricting Visitors to the Health Centre Effective Tonight
Hospital scaling down non-urgent clinical activity
Effective tonight at 8:00 p.m. (March 16), visitors will no longer be permitted access to the North Bay Regional Health Centre (NBRHC) unless under exceptional circumstances as approved by the manager (or designate) of the respective department or unit.
Any visitors that need to be here under exceptional circumstances must be 18 years or older and pass the screening at our Emergency Department entrance. Visitors could be turned away at the unit level if they do not meet the criteria for exceptional circumstances.
Patients attending our Emergency Department may bring a maximum of one adult support person.
NBRHC has no positive cases of COVID-19 at our hospital.
The Health Centre is working through the details of scaling down our non-urgent clinical activities and will provide further information when it is available over the next 24-48 hours. Patients with existing surgeries and appointments will be contacted directly by the hospital.
Help keep our emergency room resources available for trauma and emergent care patients. Call the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit at 1-800-563-2808 extension 5229 to speak to public health nurse, or call your health care provide if you suspect COVID-19 exposure.
