Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) cancelled non-emergency surgeries and procedures last week after receiving direction from the province. Surgical Services is currently restricted to urgent/emergent surgical and endoscopy cases.  

As well, the MAHC continues to restrict general visitation at both sites until further notice. Exceptions for visiting include special situations and compassionate circumstances.

Anyone visiting the hospitals can expect active screening of everyone at the entrances, including questions about symptoms and travel, and a requirement to wear a hospital-issued mask for the entirety of the visit.
