As a result, the hospital is implementing additional safety measures, including these restrictions, to reduce onward transmission.

The only exception will be circumstances, such as end of life, where visitors may be approved on a case-by-case basis if they are fully vaccinated and able to wear all appropriate PPE.

Additionally, Pembroke Regional Hospital is currently implementing enhanced testing and containment strategies to prevent further transmission among staff and patients.

“This outbreak is an important reminder that we must all continue to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19,” said PRH President and CEO Pierre Noel.

In a press release, Pembroke Regional Hospital said it continues to encourage all residents to do their part to help reduce the spread of the virus, including:

  • Get vaccinated with all the doses to which you are entitled.
  • Limit close contact.
  • Wearing a mask in indoor public spaces.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
