Nipigon District Memorial Hospital


Website updated - Dec 4, 2023



DECEMBER 4, 2023 -

Effective immediately, Nipigon Hospital is increasing its masking requirements to include all staff and visitors.


With continued escalating respiratory illnesses occurring in the community and presenting at the hospital, as a proactive preventative measure to best support the safety and well-being of staff, patients, residents and community, it has become necessary to increase our masking requirements.  

All visitors (including ER, outpatients for Lab, Diagnostic Imaging and Physio) are required to wear a face mask while in the facility at all times.  Face masks will be provided at all entrances of the hospital.

Rest assured, the Infection Control Committee will continue to closely monitor the trends and reassess the masking mandate on a regular basis.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.  Together, let's keep each other healthy and well for the holiday season ahead!
