Persons who are ill or who may have been exposed to persons infected with COVID-19 are not allowed to visit the hospital as well as persons who have been in SVG for less than fourteen (14) days.
Also, patients requiring entry to the facility for the purpose of accessing other services, will be expected to show supporting documentation (e.g. prescription, appointment cards, hospital bill, forms for procedures, etc.)
New Visiting Hours are from 3pm to 5pm (the 11am to 12 noon visiting hour slot has been removed)
With all existing restrictions currently in force, the Ministry of Health is appealing to the public to ensure that personal supplies for loved ones are taken to the hospital within visiting hours.
