Blanche River Health has brought back visitor restrictions following COVID-19 outbreaks at its Englehart and Kirkland Lake hospital sites.
All in-patient visits by essential care partners have been suspended until further notice, with the exception of visits to patients who are under end-of-life care; who are critically ill and awaiting transfer to another facility; or who are under the age of 18.
Essential care partners who are permitted to visit must wear full protective personal equipment and complete a rapid antigen test.
No visitation will be permitted for patients who have a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19.
