Visiting at the South Wing at the Huntsville District Memorial Hospital (HDMH) Site has been suspended following a COVID-19 outbreak.

The MAHC says four patients on South Wing at the HDMH Site have tested positive for COVID-19 and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit has placed South Wing under unit-specific COVID-19 outbreak status.

Testing of patients and staff is occurring as part of outbreak management protocols, and enhanced cleaning practices are underway to limit spread.

Interim President & CEO Vickie Kaminski says “Visiting restrictions are in place for South Wing at the Huntsville site only, but further restrictions may follow.”
