Visiting and COVID-19

To protect our patients and staff, Guelph General Hospital has made the difficult decision to stop allowing most visitors into the hospital.

Exceptions will be made for exceptional circumstances including:

  • Close relative of a terminally ill patients near end of life
  • Parent of a child under the age of 18
  • Partners/support persons of patients giving birth
  • Visitor is requested to attend hospital to be present to support patients whose needs may be best met by having a family member (e.g. dementia patients with increased agitation)

We know there may be other exceptional circumstances. These will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
