Today, Fraser Health is providing the following information about COVID-19 in our region:

Acute

Fraser Health has declared a COVID-19 outbreak over at Burnaby Hospital.

With the implementation of comprehensive strategies, there is no longer an outbreak at this site.

To enter an acute care facility, visitors must be fully vaccinated (seven days past their second dose of COVID-19) or considered excluded, as per the list below). 

Visitors are required to be screened for signs and symptoms of illness, including COVID-19 symptoms, as well as show proof of full vaccination and identification prior to entry, including if only to pass through the facility to access an outdoor space. If you have any signs or symptoms of illness, or are in self-isolation or quarantine in accordance with public health directives, you will not be permitted to visit.

For more information about acute care visitor guidelines, please visit fraserhealth.ca/visitor.

Long-term care

Fraser Health has declared a COVID-19 outbreak over at Cascade Gardens Seniors Community in Burnaby.

With the implementation of comprehensive strategies to prevent and respond to COVID-19 in care facilities, there are no longer any COVID-19 cases at this location.

To enter a long-term care or assisted living facility, visitors (except children under the age of vaccine eligibility, those with an approved medical exemption and visits at end-of-life) must provide proof of full vaccination (seven days past their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine). Visitors are required to be screened for signs and symptoms of illness, including COVID-19 symptoms, and asked to sign in for contact tracing purposes, prior to entry at every visit.

Visitors who do not demonstrate that they are fully vaccinated may visit outdoors and must adhere to all infection prevention and control requirements, including wearing a medical mask (for people age five years and older) during their entire visit. Exceptions related to compassionate care (e.g. end-of-life care), will be considered on an individual case basis with additional preventative measures in place.
