Island Health is only permitting visits for three reasons.
Essential visits will be considered for patients who are critically ill, receiving end-of-life care, or frail and in need of an escort of a family member for their own safety.
To be granted visitation privileges visitors need to be healthy, exhibiting no signs of a cough, runny nose, fever, sore throat, or shortness of breath and they must not have travelled internationally in the last 14 days.
