Limited entry in place
To continue to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission and protect our most vulnerable people, NBRHC visitor restrictions are still in place at all its sites. We are now moving to a +1 for inpatients—this direction is based on availability of space to allow for physical distance.
Each inpatient may have one dedicated care partner (plus a designated alternate) for the patient’s length of stay between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. or 5 and 8 p.m. (only one entry and one exit each day)
Children could be a dedicated care partner. A care partner who is a child (a young caregiver, defined as children and youth as young as 8 years old) has to be accompanied by one parent, guardian or family member.
Two dedicated visitors are allowed to provide end-of-life support to a patient. These visitors are also not restricted to the two-hour limit and could be different people each day. Everyone must be able to appropriately physically distance.
PREVIOUS RESTRICTIVE ENTRY IS STILL IN PLACE IN OUTPATIENT AREAS (Emergency Department, Outpatient Clinics).
To learn more about the restrictive entry, please visit our COVID-19 page.
