Masking Update for Family and Visitors

Effective immediately for the Lumsden & District Heritage, the changes will be as follows:

  • Continuous masking for staff, patients/residents and visitors will be discontinued.
  • Masks may be required at times, consistent with pre-pandemic point of care risk assessment processes and routine IPAC practices or in outbreak situations.
  • Physical distancing measures are no longer in place.
  • There are no longer restrictions on food sharing, food donations and in-person meetings.

Masks will continue to be readily available for any residents, family members/visitors and staff who may need or want to wear one.


Some additional reminders:

  • Upon entry, all family/visitors will continue to complete the visitor log including date, name, resident, contact phone number and time in and out
