Bay Haven Care Community Visitor Policy

Bay Haven Care Community is taking precautions to protect our residents and staff as the second wave of COVID-19 is striking hard in different parts of the region.  Please see the attached Visitor Policy which follows all government directives and rules and is in effect until further notice. As the COVID-19 Pandemic evolves, Bay Haven Care Community will adjust the home’s visiting rules as necessary, keeping the safety and well-being of residents and staff at the forefront. Visitors should consider their personal health and susceptibility to the virus in determining whether to visit a Long-Term Care Home is appropriate.

All visitors MUST attest that they have read/re-read the entire Visitor Policy once a month before visiting.
