What’s Up @ WLMH: June 2020
Welcoming visitors back to our hospitals
We know that patients in hospital have been missing you – their caregivers, family, friends and support persons – during the pandemic. We’re pleased to be able to welcome visitors back to our sites.
We’re taking a staged approach and following COVID-19 safety guidelines, including masking, physical distancing and appropriate hand washing.
This change has been made on the best advice of our patient and family advisors, staff, physicians and partners. Here’s more information about these visiting changes.
