Horizon reminds public masks are mandatory in hospitals and health care facilities

HORIZON Horizon wishes to remind the public that masks remain mandatory in all Horizon hospitals and health care facilities.

All patients, clients and support persons will continue to be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and asked a series of questions upon entry to our facilities. Everyone entering a facility must monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms, clean their hands, wear a mask, and maintain physical distancing, where required.

These precautions continue to be necessary to respond for the health and safety of patients, clients, staff, and physicians. COVID-19 cases in the community, hospital and within the health care team remain high.

Horizon facilities remain in the Red alert level even though the province’s public health measures and mandatory order were lifted on March 14, 2022.

Thank you for your continued understanding and patience.
