Aline-Chrétien Health Hub tightens masking guidelines

Ottawa, September 13, 2023 - With the arrival of the respiratory virus season, Aline-Chrétien Health Hub reviewed its masking guidelines. As of Thursday, September 14, masks must be worn at all times by staff and visitors, in all clinical areas.  

This applies, namely, to care units and waiting rooms.  

Wearing a mask is still recommended in public and non-clinical areas, such as main corridors and the store. 

We also remind visitors not to come to the Hub if they are not feeling well or have symptoms. Of course, if you need care, don’t hesitate to go to the nearest hospital. 

This decision was taken in light of the recent rise in COVID-19 indicators and the importance we place on the safety of our staff and patients, particularly those whose health conditions make them more vulnerable to infection.  

We continue to carefully monitor hospital and public health indicators and will adjust accordingly.
