Reminder to all patients and visitors: Wearing a mask is mandatory at the MUHC
Despite the change to a yellow zone, wearing a mask is still mandatory on all MUHC sites including hospitals, long-term care facilities and all administrative buildings.
All patients and visitors must remove their mask upon entering the hospital (this includes all types of masks) and put on a procedure mask which will supplied to you by the MUHC.
There are certain exceptions notably for:
- health-care employees who are completely behind Plexiglass coverings in certain clinical areas,
- or while eating and drinking if you can respect the 2 metre distance from others,
Wearing a mask is obligatory throughout the day in all locations, including public spaces, elevators, and hallways. It should cover your nose, mouth and chin at all times and should not have a valve.
Mask wearing, physical distancing, and hand washing remain key in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
