On March 21, there will be no change for those coming to Sinai Health’s Mount Sinai and Hennick Bridgepoint Hospitals.

The Government of Ontario’s announcement related to lifting public health requirements for COVID-19 includes a condition that some high-risk settings, like hospitals, can and should maintain infection prevention and control measures.

Throughout the pandemic the safety of everyone in our hospitals has been paramount. Preventing exposures and outbreaks in health care settings are essential. Patients and their families entrust us to care for them when they are at their most vulnerable and hospitals have a duty to ensure that patients are cared for in a safe environment.

What to expect when you come to the hospital

When you come to Mount Sinai or Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital, you can still expect to:

  • Wear a mask in any of our buildings.
  • Be screened for COVID-19.
  • Provide proof of vaccination as an essential care partners
  • See your care team continue to follow current personal protective equipment requirements and COVID-19 vaccine policies.
  • Follow physical distancing measures in place in elevators and waiting rooms.

As the community continues to open up, we will monitor the evolving pandemic situation. We ask that you extend patience and kindness to our entrance screeners and your care team during this next phase of managing COVID-19.
