General Information

Coming to SHN

Across our health network, we continue to have some temporary measures in place to help protect the safety of patients, family members, and staff.

Screening at Entrances

Everyone entering the hospital will be asked to self-screen for COVID-19, clean hands, and take a hospital-approved mask provided at the entrance if visiting a patient care area.

Masks are required in all patient care areas:

  • Inpatient units
  • Outpatient units
  • Emergency department
  • Waiting rooms
  • Registration areas
  • Clinical support departments such as Diagnostic Imaging, etc.

Masks are optional in non-patient care areas:

  • The lobby and other common areas
  • Cafeterias
  • Retail spaces such as Tim Hortons
  • Meeting rooms

Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and support. You are helping to keep our patients, health care workers and community safe!
