Starting tomorrow, February 10, GBHS will permit two visitors per inpatient at all GBHS hospitals. Outpatients attending most types of appointments must still come alone due to space limitations, unless a support person is essential.

All visitors are still required to wear a mask and show government issued photo identification and proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (2 doses) upon entering any GBHS facility.

GBHS recognizes the importance of visitors to the emotional and physical well-being of patients, and we look forward to welcoming visitors into our facilities again.  The visitor policy will continue to evolve based on the presence of COVID-19 in our communities.  

The chart below applies to all six GBHS Hospitals – Lion’s Head, Markdale, Meaford, Owen Sound, Southampton and Wiarton.
