Alberta Health Services is adjusting designated support and visitation access at all acute, ambulatory and emergency/urgent care sites starting Monday.
This is being done to manage the “escalating impact” of COVID-19 at hospitals, AHS said Friday afternoon.
“In-person access is still available for designated support persons and visitors as needed, however, we recommend patients, family and friends stay connected virtually or by phone, whenever possible, rather than in-person at our sites,” said AHS.
“These adjustments are necessary to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff and to support patient care as we manage increasing capacity challenges.”
