Changes coming to masking in Renfrew County

July 07, 2020

Renfrew County District Health Unit (RCDHU) announced on July 6 that new masking directives are being developed which will require individuals to wear a cloth mask or face covering in enclosed public spaces beginning next week. Due to an anticipated increase in the demand for masks, we ask that all patients and visitors to the Renfrew Victoria Hospital please bring and wear their own masks. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided. Information and resources for wearing a mask—how to wear, where to wear, where to purchase, exemptions, etc.—are available on the Renfrew County District Health Unit website.
