Message to the Community
RVH is well-prepared to respond to COVID-19 taking all precautions necessary to ensure the safety of its patients, staff, physicians, volunteers, visitors and broader community. RVH has received confirmation of a second lab-confirmed COVID-19 case.
Thank you to all of those in our community for offering donations of food, gift cards and beverages to support the staff at RVH.
While these gestures are appreciated, for the safety of the public and our patients we are asking that food and other donations not be dropped off at RVH. It is important to for everyone to stay home and respect social distancing. We need to limit arrivals at RVH to those coming for acute care.
For those eager to support front-line staff at this time, please do so by making a donation to RVHHERO.ca. We will use these funds to support food, beverages and supplies for TEAM RVH members. We have also received outstanding response from members of the business community who have donated unopened boxes of personal protective supplies such as masks and gloves. These donations are still being accepted and all inquiries should be made to Kelly Pottage firstname.lastname@example.org
