Masks offered to patients and approved visitors to Toronto General Hospital

As of Wednesday, April 29th, all patients and approved visitors coming to UHN will be offered Level 1 procedure masks.

Patients and approved visitors who arrive without a mask will be provided a mask at door screening.

Patients and approved visitors who arrive with their own mask will keep their mask and continue to wear it as they would have otherwise—as long as it is in in good repair. If the mask is of poor quality and/or ill-fitting, staff will ask them to wear the mask the hospital is offering. The patients and visitors can keep their own mask should they choose.

Everyone who enters a UHN site will be asked to perform hand hygiene.
