Public Notice: Medical Masks Mandatory for All Persons Circulating in Vitalité Health Network Facilities
Wednesday, December 23, 2020
MEDICAL masks are now mandatory for patients and visitors entering a Vitalité Health Network facility (exception, children less that 2 years of age). This new directive is being implemented to ensure the safety of patients, visitors and staff and to minimize the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
Upon entry, all patients and visitors will be provided with a medical mask. They will be asked to remove their mask / face covering and put on a MEDICAL mask provided by the Network. Hand hygiene must be performed after taking off their mask / face covering and before putting on the medical mask. Hand hygiene must be performed again after putting on the medical mask.
Please note that NO EXEMPTION from wearing a mask is allowed in order to gain access to Network facilities. The Network would like to thank the public for its valuable cooperation in implementing these security measures.
