Guidelines for hospital visitors
Effective November 2, 2020 until further notice

Visitor access for inpatients is restricted. At the discretion of the care team, exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis for patients receiving end-of-life care, in labour and delivery, as well as in pediatrics.

If a patient’s length of stay reaches 14 days AND discharge is unlikely to occur in the next 72 hours, one designated support person can be identified to visit and will be allowed to visit (with appropriate screening and precautions) for the remainder of the patient’s stay.

Masks required: All visitors must bring and wear a non-medical mask, pass the screening requirement, practice proper hand hygiene, and always maintain physical distancing.

For more information, review the Inpatient Visitation Principles during Provincial Response Level RED. Any exceptions beyond those stated in the provincial document must be reviewed and approved by the Director and the HSC Executive team for final approval.

Virtual visits: Loved ones are encouraged to keep in touch with patients through phone and video calls. As well, the HSC Well Wishes program is a free service which gives loved ones the opportunity to send adult patients a personalized greeting.

Patient belongings: Items must be disinfected upon arrival to the patient room (where possible). The items must be dedicated to the intended patient only, and not shared with other patients. Approved items include newspapers, cards, books, flowers, bedding, stuffed animals, magazines, puzzles. More information can be found in the COVID-19 Specific Disease Protocol (Winnipeg).

We are unable to support the transport of money from entry points to patient units. Debit or credit cards are accepted.
