Only visits by family caregivers will be authorized at the CISSS des Laurentides

As part of the fight against the second wave of COVID-19
As part of the transition to red and orange alert levels in Laurentides and in order to protect vulnerable people and staff, the CISSS des Laurentides temporarily limits visits to its various facilities. Thus, users hospitalized or accommodated in a CISSS facility will only be able to receive visits from their family caregivers.
“These new rules allow us to maintain a certain number of must-see visitors and prevent our patients from being kept in solitude as was sometimes the case during the first wave of COVID-19. Nevertheless, we must limit traffic in our various healthcare and service settings in order to reduce the risk of contamination and to facilitate the application of protective measures for all, ”explained Ms. Rosemonde Landry, President and CEO of CISSS des Laurentides, hoping that the population understands the importance of these measures.
Visits by family caregivers
All caregivers who do not present symptoms and are not confirmed COVID cases are authorized to access the hospital environment or the living and rehabilitation environments of their loved ones, such as residential and care centers long-term, private residences for seniors, intermediate resources, family-type resources, hospital centers, as well as rehabilitation settings.
Exceptions apply to people in palliative care, at the end of life or for children requiring the presence of their parent, as well as in sectors for which an accompanying person is required.
