Family members/partners-in-care

You may bring one (1) family member/partner-in-care with you to appointments if you need their support.  Your family member/partner-in-care needs to:

  • Be symptom free (not have any symptoms of COVID, a cold, flu or other virus).
  • Use hand sanitizer/wash their hands often. 

We may need to restrict the number of family members/partners-in-care in some areas of the cancer centre where space is limited.  We need to make sure we can safely provide care and treatment to all patients.  

Our visiting us page offers information on what you can expect for your appointments.
