Windsor.Regional.Hospital is providing the following update regarding the impact of several nursing students who early this week had tested positive for COVID-19 and were recently on student placement at the hospital.
We ask that all visitors continue to follow our COVID-19 protocols including diligent hand washing, masking while in hospital, physically distancing as much as possible, and following any additional precaution signage posted. Please ask the nursing staff if you are unsure. All staff are to continue to mask at all times, in addition to any other required personal protective equipment (PPE).
It is clear that these protocols help to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 to patients and among our staff.
ALL nursing student placements at WRH remain suspended until further notice. Also, ALL clinical student placements (with the exception of Schulich clinical placements) on 7W and 6E at Ouellette and 6N and 8N at Met have been halted until this issue is cleared.
Windsor Regional Hospital will continue to collaborate with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit, the University of Windsor, and St. Clair College and will keep the community informed during this situation.
As a reminder, to schedule a COVID-19 assessment appointment you can go online on your mobile device or computer (using Safari or Chrome) and select a certain date/time for your appointment or by "first available time". Please have your health card in hand when booking on-line or calling in.
