Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare is suspending visitors because of an increase in COVID-19 cases in the community.

According to a news release from the west-end hospital, the decision was made to protect the safety of the patients and staff.

Effective Tuesday, November 17, HDGH will no longer be allowing registered visitors.

Designated Care Partners will continue to be allowed on campus. These are individuals who have done special training for COVID-19 safety protocols and have been identified in the patient’s coordinated care plan. The designated care partners will be required to stay in the patient’s room and wear a mask at all times.

Exemptions will be made for patients who require end-of-life care. In these scenarios, patients may have up to three visitors at a time.

HDGH will continue to monitor the local COVID-19 rates and adjust its policy when necessary.
