From the Document: "To reduce the spread of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] and protect the health and safety of residents, patients, physicians, staff, and volunteers. Alberta Health Services (AHS) has taken steps to limit the number of individuals entering our facilities. AHS recognizes that visitor and family presence is integral to patient safety, the healing process, the patient's medical and psychological well-being, comfort and quality of life. Limitations to family/support presence and visitation are continuously re-evaluated based on the risk of COVID-19 and in consideration of patients/residents, families and health care providers. While this document aims to provide clarity for visitation and family/support during COVID-19, decisions related to application of this guidance in specific circumstances rest with the site/facility leadership."
