Important Notice Regarding Visitation

Effective Monday, September 28th – Visitation Update

Manitoba’s Chief Public Health Officer has elevated Winnipeg to the restricted level, Orange.  This public health order is effective Monday, September 28th for at least 4 weeks.

This public health order results in the following changes to visiting at the Simkin Centre:

(1) The 2 designated family care givers may continue to visit in the Resident’s room only.  Residents can no longer be taken downstairs by family members to visit outside.  There may only be 1 visitor in the room at a time during these visits.

(2) Visits for those who previously visited outside cannot be accommodated during this time.

(3) Visits due to end of life care will continue to be supported. 
FaceTime visits can be arranged using our booking app.

Thank you for your cooperation and support as we work together to keep our Residents and staff safe.

We will continue to share updated information as it becomes available.
