New visitor restrictions added for Health PEI facilities

Effective immediately, Health PEI is restricting all visitors to its facilities to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Exceptions apply for palliative patients, intensive care, neonatal intensive care, obstetric and pediatric units. In these units, only ONE designated visitor is permitted - a member of the patient's immediate family OR their care partner within the hospital.

All long-term care facilities continue to fully restrict visitors.

Additionally, anyone who has traveled outside of Canada and has returned since March 8 is restricted from visiting patients for 14 days following their return.

We are assessing this situation daily and additional restrictions to visitors may be put in place. Continue to monitor for up-to-date information.
