The CISSS des Laurentides is now authorizing visits in most of its installations, under certain conditions. Stringent safety measures are in force to protect residents, visitors and staff.
It is now possible to visit a loved one at a rehabilitation centre or hospital, or a resident of a long-term care facility (CHSLD), except for establishments and units experiencing an outbreak, which remain closed to visitors. Families that wish to visit are asked to confirm beforehand with the care unit involved in which visiting is permitted. All the visitors must comply with instructions, including regarding visiting hours, protection protocols (filling out a health questionnaire, wearing a mask or face covering, washing hands) and restrictions on the number of visitors.

Visits to hospitals in the Laurentians
Visits to hospitals are limited to one person at a time, for a maximum of 4 visitors per day. Visitors should be between 18 and 70 years of age. Please note that visitors must be free of any COVID-19-related symptoms and must not have been in contact with an infected person and/or awaiting a test result. Physical distancing must be practised in all cases. This is to protect the health and safety of our residents, staff and visitors. For details regarding the specific conditions required for each sector and for other installations, residents are asked to check the Visitors section in the COVID- 19 webpage on the CISSS des Laurentides. Given that the situation is evolving, it is recommend that residents regularly check for updates to the guidelines.

Caregivers
Since May 11, 2020, the CISSS des Laurentides has authorized visits by significant caregivers to loved
ones in residential facilities in the Laurentian region. The restrictions listed above do not apply to these
types of visits.

Saint-Jérôme hospital
Given its status as a designated COVID-19 center, the Saint-Jérôme regional hospital continues to accept
COVID-19 patients in need of hospitalisation. For this reason, visits are prohibited, except to those in the
maternity unit (centre mère-enfant) and to bloc R.
