For immediate release – June 16, 2020
To support public health measures, the IWK is following a phased approach related to easing restrictions.
The IWK Health Centre will soon include additional support people for patients where it is operationally feasible and safe to do so within the current public health safety guidelines.
Effective this Friday, June 19, 2020, the IWK will allow:
Individuals will be screened at entrances to the health centre.
At this time, general visitors will not be permitted at the IWK.
The needs of our patients and families are always at the heart of our decision making and the limitations related to support people has been very challenging for patients, families and IWK teams. We ask for your patience and understanding as we approach this safely and gradually.
