The hospital’s Occupational Health and Safety office is offering booster clinics for staff, physicians and midwives are one example of the precautions in place, as is the universal-masking policy that requires masks to be worn properly at all times in all areas – except when eating of drinking in the Main Street Bistro.

With on-going support from a multi-disciplinary team that includes NHH staff and health professionals from the Ontario Health Team-Northumberland (as well as Northumberland County paramedics), such services as COVID-19 assessment and testing are available.
