Visitor Guidelines at AMGH


Alexandra Marine and General Hospital recognizes the important role that family and essential care partners play in the support and recovery of their loved ones in hospital. We continue to work with our regional partners to balance the need for family / essential care partner presence and our top priority of keeping our patients, families, care partners, staff, physicians and you safe.


When a family/friend is admitted to hospital:


  • Due to high levels of community transmission, all patients are isolated upon admission to the hospital pending results of testing for COVID-19.
  • Visitors are restricted until the patients COVID-19 status is confirmed as negative and precautions are lifted.
  • Inpatient visitors entering the hospital must self-screen negative for COVID-19


VISITORS should NOT come to the hospital if they:


  • Are feeling unwell
  • Tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days
  • Have had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19
