Attention visitors: Heart Institute updates visitation policy

September 22, 2021

As of September 27, 2021, the University of Ottawa Heart Institute requires visitors to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and photo ID. This effort is essential to ensure the health and safety of our patients, visitors, staff, and our community at large.

COVID-19 vaccination reduces risk of serious illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19, and protects our healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed. In the coming weeks, hospitals in the Champlain region will begin requiring proof of vaccination for visitors entering the hospital.

We thank you in advance for your understanding, patience, and cooperation.

Please visit the Pandemic Visitation Policy webpage for more details.
