Mandatory Vaccination Policy for Hospital Visitors and Essential Caregivers

As part of our ongoing efforts to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of our patients, Arnprior Regional Health has aligned with other hospitals in the Champlain region by implementing a mandatory vaccination policy for our Hospital visitors and essential caregivers effective October 15, 2021.

Under the new policy, all visitors and essential caregivers will need to be fully vaccinated (at least 14 days since the second dose) in order to enter the Hospital, unless they qualify under one of the following exceptions:

  • Individuals under the age of 12.
  • Those who clearly indicate they have a medical exemption.
  • Individuals visiting patients at the end-of-life.
  • Parents of children who are receiving care.
  • Individuals who are essential to accompany patients to appointments or participate in care planning discussions.
  • Other critical or urgent circumstances requiring family presence.

In alignment with the new Ontario vaccination passport system, visitors and essential caregivers will be required to show proof of vaccination along with photo identification.
