What is RVH doing?

RVH has implemented a number of protocols. In addition to continuous surveillance we have:

  • Enhanced screening measures: All patients and visitors are required to self-screen at entrances. 
  • Patients with symptoms will be masked and cared for by staff wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including contact and droplet precautions.
  • We have implemented more frequent and enhanced cleaning in our busy areas.
  • RVH is in frequent contact with public health and is participating in a regional committee to ensure preparedness.
  • Created critical care capacity and designated COVID units


  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Avoid close contact with others
  • Avoid shaking hands
  • If you are concerned about your symptoms or have travelled outside of the country, consult your healthcare provider as soon as possible.
