Coming to the Hospital

Visitor Access to the Hospital

Cornwall Community Hospital (CCH) has suspended its COVID-19 visitor restrictions as of June 27, 2022.

Visitors are no longer required to book an appointment. There are no hours of restriction which allows visiting at any time, to the patient’s preference.

The number of people welcomed at the bedside is determined in collaboration with the patient, family and care team. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

To ensure safety, considerations will also be given to the physical limitations of space. As an example, only one guest per admitted patient in the Emergency Department can be accommodated.

Staff members may ask a visitor to speak at a lower volume or leave if they are failing to comply with appropriate standards of behaviour and rules of the Hospital.

Between the hours of 8:00 pm and 6:00 am, visitors are asked to come through the Emergency Department door and check-in with security personnel before proceeding for their visit. Otherwise visitors may enter the hospital through the Main Entrance (south side of the building).

To respect the privacy and personal information of our staff, physicians and patients, taking photographs and recording videos in the hospital is prohibited.

Before coming, please conduct a self-assessment for COVID-19 symptoms and stay home if you are feeling unwell. Symptoms of COVID-19 can be found here.

A mask must be worn at all times while in the hospital. Medical grade masks are available at each entrance for anyone entering the hospital.


CCH is a Smoke-Free Property

For the wellbeing of other visitors as well as our staff, physicians and patients, smoking on hospital property is forbidden. Should you wish to smoke, we ask that you leave the property and smoke on the sidewalk.
