Attention: Visitor Access Restrictions in our long-term care homes

The Ministry of Health, working with the provincial health officer, has developed updated guidelines to support visits between family members and residents of long-term care homes and seniors’ assisted living facilities. Under these new guidelines for social visits, residents can visit with one designated family member or friend*.*Facility staff/operator can approve a change to the designated visitor under extenuating circumstances; for example, if the visitor moves away or becomes ill and is unable to visit.

Please note: Visits are not allowed if there is an active COVID-19 outbreak at the residence.

One hundred percent of long-term care and seniors’ assisted living facilities have safety plans in place and are offering family/ social visits. Signage will be posted at all main entrances to clearly communicate essential and social visit policies, with a phone number to call if visitors have questions or need assistance at the site.

For all visitors:

  • You will be screened for signs and symptoms of illness, including COVID-19, and possible exposure to COVID-19, prior to every visit.
  • You will need to bring a mask and wear it for the duration of your visit.
  • Please practice hand and respiratory hygiene (cough/sneeze etiquette), and maintain two-metres of physical distance where possible.

If you are an essential visitor:

  • You may not need to schedule your visit in advance.
  • If there is another family member or friend providing essential care, only one visitor is allowed at a time*.
  • *Except for palliative and end-of-life care, where more than one visitor may be allowed at a time.

If you are visiting for social reasons, you will need to do the following:

  • Book your visit with facility staff in advance
  • Socialize in designated areas identified by facility staff 

If you have any question, concern or need assistance with the facility’s safety procedures, please contact the number listed on the poster at the main entrance(s). In addition to visits in person, we also encourage you to stay in touch with your family or friend at the facility either virtually or remotely. As B.C. works to continue “flattening the curve,” we will continue to update the guidelines to ensure the health and safety of patients, residents, staff, and visitors.
