Regional health authorities to maintain COVID-19 precautions as NB goes Green

As New Brunswick enters its Green Phase, Horizon and Vitalité health networks will continue to take all necessary precautions to protect the safety of staff and physicians, patients and clients, and visitors and our vulnerable health care system.

Effective Saturday, July 31, current visitor guidelines will remain in place at Horizon and Vitalité hospitals and health care facilities.

Please note:

  • All visitors will continue to be screened upon entry.
  • Masks are required for everyone in a Horizon or Vitalité facility. When you come to a Horizon hospital or health care facility for an appointment or to visit a loved one, please wear your own face mask. You will be provided a new face mask during the screening process and asked to put on this face mask before entering.
  • Physical distancing must be maintained.
  • Frequent hand cleaning is required. 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic our guidelines have successfully limited the risk of COVID-19 in our facilities. The safety of staff and physicians, patients and clients, and visitors remains our number one priority.

Complete details on visitor guidelines can be found on Horizon and Vitalité websites.
