Cancelling Visitation Hours at all WGH Sites

As of May 21, 2021 no visitors will be allowed. Exceptional circumstances will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Please note that we are presently under a “No Visitor” directive at all WGH Sites.

Please call your local Public Health Team first if you are concerned you are having COVID-19 symptoms Monday-Friday. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) are available as usual 24/7.

This is for the safety of our patients and staff.
