COVID-19 Visitor Policy & Advisory

Latest COVID-19 visitation policy, advisory, guides, and resources at ECON Healthcare

Our Visitor Policy is updated in tandem with national advisories. All guidelines and restrictions put in place are to safeguard the health of our residents, clients and staff. We thank you for working with us to ensure safety for everyone.

 

Note:
You can only book an appointment up to 7 days in advance. This allows more families an opportunity to secure a visit with their loved ones.

As we continue to take strict precautions to further reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure to ensure the safety of our staff and residents, each visitor is also required to complete a separate health declaration form before entering our nursing homes. Visitors with travel history within the last 14 days will be denied entry.
