Updated July 7, 2022

To ensure the safety of patients, families and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, visiting restrictions for South Bruce Grey Health Centre’s (SBGHC) four hospital sites are currently in place.

We recognize that limiting visiting can be very difficult for patient and families, however, patient safety is our top priority.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding.

Visiting Guidelines:

Patients can identify their Partners in Care to support them during their visit or stay as outlined below until further notice.  Partners in Care are individuals identified by the patient as support persons that they would like present during their hospital stay.  If there are other special circumstances that affect visiting requirements, this will be reviewed on a case by case basis with the care team.
General visiting remains closed at this time.

Please note:

  • Masking while in hospital is mandatory to protect yourself and our patients
  • Please refrain from bringing food or drink into the hospital
  • Attempt to maintain 2m distance from others where possible (unless providing care)
  • Wash your hands upon entering and exiting the patient room (sanitizer is provided throughout the hospital)
