To patients, helpers and caregivers: Instructions for wearing a mask inside the MUHC
As of May 12, all patients, helpers and caregivers will be required to wear a mask or face covering upon arrival at the hospital triage station. A mask will be given to those who are not wearing one. However, a helper, attendant or caregivers who presents symptoms of COVID-19 or who has been exposed to a person with COVID-19 will not be allowed to go to the patient's bedside or accompany the patient to an appointment.
The mask must be worn at all times, except when these persons are in a closed room AND provided that they respect the two-metre distance at all times.
Mask wearing instructions for healthcare workers and MUHC staff remain the same. They must wear a procedure mask at all times when working within two metres of other individuals.
