Take this self-assessment if you're worried you were exposed to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) or have symptoms.
Effective Monday November 27, 2023 the Mattawa Hospital will require masks in all patient designated areas.
This applies to all patients, care partners, visitors, employees, volunteers, physicians and contractors.
Why is Mattawa Hospital changing its masking policy?
The decision to move to masking again in all patient designated areas was determined by our current level of hospitalizations from respiratory viruses and community transmission.
Where are masks required?
- Masks are required in all areas that are designated for patient care.
- This includes all outpatient clinics and waiting areas (diagnostic imaging, lab, clinics) and the Emergency Department.
- In all inpatient units including common spaces.
Masks will be available at the main entrances.
Where are masks optional?
Masks are optional in public and staff areas like hallways, team nursing stations, break and meeting rooms.
Masks are still welcome in all areas where they are not required. Please respect each person’s decision to wear or not wear a mask.
Visitors who feel unwell are asked to postpone visiting loved ones.
Please note the Lab has returned to walk in appointments daily Monday to Friday from 0800-1200. No appointment is necessary.
All other outpatient services at the Mattawa Hospital, including DI and Ultrasound will continue to be offered by appointment only.
Please call 705-744-5511 to schedule your appointment.
We are closed weekends and Holidays including Family Day and Easter Monday.
Thank you for your ongoing patience as we continue to plan for service delivery in a safe and meaningful way.
