We know you may have a lot of questions about COVID-19, QCH, and how to get more information. We're here to help you, so we've put together a list of commonly asked questions.
QCH remains open and the hospital is safe for patients. If you have an appointment scheduled and are not showing symptoms of COVID-19, please come in for your appointment.
Please visit our COVID-19 Visitor Restrictions webpage to learn more about visiting the hospital. Thank you for your support in keeping our patients safe.
Yes, of course. The hospital has measures in place to prepare for, detect, and respond to any potential cases – and to help prevent the spread of infection.
If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, we ask that for everyone’s safety, you do not come to the hospital at this time. You should call ahead to the clinic in case it is necessary to reschedule your appointment if your appointment is not cancelled.
Your safety is important to us. We have safety measures put in place to prevent the spread of infections. It is also important to wash your hands frequently, including when entering and leaving the hospital and before eating or drinking. Please wear a mask at all times while inside the hospital - masks add an extra layer of protection for you and those around you.
QCH – like other hospitals in the region – has supplies put aside for events like this. We have appropriate supplies to get us through a hurdle should we face one.
If a patient is suspected of having COVID-19, they are put on isolation precautions – they would not be sharing a room with a patient admitted for other medical reasons.
We have a tiered surge plan identifying space and staffing in the event of an increase of COVID-19 patients.
We have decades of experience dealing with new viruses and a strong patient care team. There is work happening at every level, planning for different scenarios and ensuring we are ready for patients who might need acute medical attention.

Ottawa Public Health has the most up-to-date information on their website. We encourage you to go there for more detailed information about COVID-19.
