Visiting a Personal Care Home during COVID-19

 

Dec. 31, 2021

NEW Visitor restrictions in PMH Personal Care Homes

Manitoba is experiencing a significant surge in COVID-19 cases. The new Omicron variant is extremely infectious, requiring some temporary additional precautions to ensure the protection of our residents, patients and staff.

Effective Immediately

Social visits/social leaves at Acute Care Facilities and Personal Care Homes have been suspended. Exceptions remain in effect, and Essential Care Partners and Designated Family Caregivers will continue to have access to facilities provided they pass all screening requirements. In addition to providing proof of immunization and identification each time you visit, you will be provided with a medical mask and eye protection.

Within Personal Care Homes (PCH) only one designated family caregiver at a time can visit. Contact your local personal care home for visiting hours.

  • No general visitation is permitted at this time, including in the visitation pods/rooms
  • Exceptions for compassionate reasons or end of life will be made on a case-by-case basis
  • Changes to other LTC guidelines are also being implemented (i.e. recreation activities)
