Good Afternoon Families and Loved Ones,
We are saddened to announce that Public Health has recommended all health zones return to the Orange Phase of Recovery, due a significant spike of COVID-19 cases in New Brunswick. To protect your loved ones and our staff, we regret to advise that all visitation is suspended until further notice, effective midnight tonight.
This is difficult news to bear and we empathize with everyone affected by this news. Over the next few weeks, cases are expected to continue to increase. This situation is not ideal, and the containment of the virus will be dependent on everyone doing their part by staying home.
These decisions are not made lightly, and we will continue to reassess visitation restrictions on an ongoing basis. We are asking that every New Brunswicker do their part, do not take chances, stay home to keep our province and most vulnerable residents safe and healthy.
We continue to offer options for virtual or window visitation. To schedule an appointment, please contact the Pandemic Support Staff at 434-4929. It is important that you call ahead to make arrangements, the Pandemic Support line will be answered between the hours of 10:00am-4:00pm, Monday-Friday.
Thank you and stay safe,
The holidays have arrived and our visitation schedule is booked up!
If you are interested in scheduling a visit, please call 434-4929 in advance.
Visitation hours will vary over the holiday season, if you have not already been contacted and you are unsure of visitation updates over Christmas, please call the nurses station at 432-3118 ext. 108 from December 25th-28th.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe Happy New Year!
