Halifax: Due to the rising number of active COVID-19 cases in the Halifax metro area and concerns about community spread, IWK Health is making changes to our support person restrictions effective immediately (Thursday, Nov. 26.)
Differences in physical layout of areas where care is provided may impact our ability to practice appropriate physical distancing. Because of this we are taking a location-by-location approach to support person restrictions.
Full details about support person changes is available online at http://www.iwk.nshealth.ca/COVID-19
We are monitoring the current situation closely and will adjust restrictions accordingly.
We thank patients & families for their cooperation as we work to provide safe care for everyone.
