The Ministry of Long-Term Care has permitted visiting to resume in LTC homes and St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph has welcomes visitors back into the facility with an approach that considers safety, emotional wellbeing, flexibility and equitable access.

Visitors play a key role in reducing the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak in our health centre. Visitors to the organization will have to adhere strictly to the rules that have been established to ensure that they can be safely welcomed into our organization once again.

Some of these rules include:

  • General visiting hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Pets are not allowed in the health centre at this time.
  • Postpone your visit if you are feeling unwell or have any of the symptoms of COVID-19.

Visitors who do not comply with these requirements will have their visiting privileges suspended and the resident they visited with may need to complete a 14-day isolation as part of infection prevention protocols.
