Notice from Island Health: Please stop gift deliveries to hospitals and long-term care facilities. 

Island Health is working in partnership with the Ministry of Health and the BC Centre for Disease Control to respond to COVID-19. The situation is evolving quickly and our strategies are evolving to keep people in the communities we serve safe.

To keep our patients, families and staff safe and in keeping with the provincial health officer’s recommendations for social distancing, Island Health requests that people not send flowers or other gifts to their loved ones in hospitals and long-term care facilities. We understand the importance of gifts from family and loved ones to our patients and long-term care residents and we appreciate your support in helping to keep everyone safe.

And please note, visitor restrictions are also in place. For more information, click here.
