Safe masking practices at Joseph Brant Hospital

At Joseph Brant Hospital (JBH), the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff is our top priority. We are committed to minimizing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses.

When to wear a mask

  • Everyone in the hospital is required to wear a mask in all areas where patients may be, including outpatient clinics and waiting areas.

  • Masks are strongly recommended in non-patient care areas such as hallways outside clinical areas, administrative offices, Tim Hortons and the cafeteria.

Screening and symptom monitoring

  • Patients and visitors must self-screen upon entry to the hospital.
  • Patients with symptoms must wear a mask at all times while in the hospital.
  • Visitors with symptoms should not come to the hospital; contact your healthcare provider for guidance.

Our commitment to safety

We are closely monitoring public health guidance and the transmission of respiratory viruses in our community. We will continue to adjust our policies and procedures as needed to protect the health and safety of everyone who comes to and works in the hospital.

We ask that you help us keep our hospital safe by following these guidelines and continuing to practice good hand hygiene and physical distancing.
