wearing Mask

Reminder to all patients and visitors: Wearing a mask is mandatory at the MUHC

Since July 18, 2020, wearing a mask is mandatory in all indoor public spaces across Quebec. 

Wearing a mask is therefore mandatory on all MUHC sites including hospitals, long-term care facilities and all administrative buildings. 

There are certain exceptions notably for:

  • health-care employees who are completely behind Plexiglass coverings in certain clinical areas,
  • or while eating and drinking if you can respect the 2 metre distance from others,

Wearing a mask is obligatory throughout the day in all locations, including public spaces, elevators, and hallways. It should cover your nose, mouth and chin at all times and should not have a valve.

Mask wearing, physical distancing, and hand washing remain key in preventing the spread of COVID-19

Thank you for your co-operation.
