Masks

Wearing a Mask Within Our Facilities

Wear a mask sign

In accordance with Ministry of Health policy, masks must be worn by all persons visiting a health-care facility, including hospitals, health centres, physician’s offices and outpatient clinics. Island Health has also taken steps within our facilities to reduce the risk of transmission with physical barriers and signs to promote physical distancing.

Please help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a face mask or covering when visiting an Island Health facility.

We will be posting signs at all major entrances to our facilities. Island Health Ambassadors will be on site at all hospitals to welcome you, complete COVID-19 screening, direct you to the hand sanitizer and ensure you are wearing a mask before entering.  Before you enter an Island Health location, be sure to mask-up. 

Thank you for doing your part in protecting yourself and others around you.
