Masking Requirements

Mask Friendly

St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital is a mask friendly environment. We support those who wish to wear a mask while in hospital. Please respect the choices of others.

Masks are strongly recommended in the Emergency Department.

Patients entering the hospital with fever or respiratory symptoms are required to wear a mask. Visitors who feel unwell are asked to postpone visiting loved ones until they feel well.

Masks are available at all entrances and in clinical areas.
