Visitor Restrictions – Upcoming changes

At their daily COVID-19 briefing on Wednesday, June 4, Shared Health and Public Health announced the gradual easing of visitor restrictions for hospitals across the province. We will begin allowing expanded visitor access for visiting patients in hospital starting the week of June 8.

Current visitor restrictions remain in place for now. St. Boniface Hospital is currently reviewing how to allow patients to see loved ones in person safely while keeping measures to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19.

We will be updating this page as more details become available.

—————————————-

In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, St. Boniface Hospital is taking appropriate measures to protect our patients, visitors and staff.

Since 6 p.m. March 17, 2020, all visitors are restricted from the Hospital except on a compassionate basis and will be screened accordingly.

In exceptional circumstances, an escort may be allowed to accompany a patient. For example, the partner of a labouring mother and the parents/caregivers of an infant in NICU would fall in this category.

We appreciate your patience as we work through any issues and adjust accordingly.
