Effective August 28th, masks are required in all clinical and waiting areas of Queensway Carleton Hospital.


Staff, volunteers, patients, and families are required to wear a mask at all times in patient rooms, the Emergency Department, clinics, and waiting rooms.


Masks are recommended but not required in public areas outside of clinical areas, such as hallways, elevators, cafeterias, and coffee shops.


We will actively monitor hospital and other public health indicators and make further adjustments as appropriate.


As a reminder, we ask visitors to stay home if they experience symptoms, except if they need to receive care.
