Visitor restrictions implemented at Horizon’s Hotel-Dieu of St. Joseph

(PERTH-ANDOVER) – Horizon’s Hotel-Dieu of St. Joseph (HDSJ) in Perth-Andover has implemented enhanced visitor restrictions due to the recent increase in confirmed COVID-19 cases in the area.

Effective immediately there will be NO VISITORS ALLOWED at HDSJ.

Some exceptions to these visitor restrictions are in place for certain patients, including patients in palliative care. As well, patients visiting the Emergency Department and outpatient clinics who require assistance may have one support person only.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Horizon has taken measures in our facilities to reduce traffic and create a safe and healthy environment for our patients, clients, staff, physicians and communities.

Along with wearing a mask, hand washing and physical distancing, these visitor restrictions are an additional measure to help keep our vulnerable patients and staff and physicians safe.
