Due to COVID-19, Mount Sinai Hospital and Bridgepoint Active Healthcare will no longer permit visitors as of Sunday, March 22, with the following exceptions:
- Parents of a baby in the NICU and parents of patients under 18
- Birthing partner of a woman in labour and postpartum
- Visitor of an imminently dying patient
- Patients with a condition or disability who would be unable to attend a critical outpatient service without an escort
We understand the impact this will have on patients and their families. This is an extremely difficult decision but in light of community transmission, we need to protect our patients and those providing care for them. We urge families and caregivers to keep in touch by phone or digital technologies.
All visitors will continue to be screened before entering the hospital for any fever or respiratory illness symptoms, including cough, sore throat or runny nose.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this difficult time.
