Dear Families,

The following restrictions at RC MacGillivray Guest Home are in effect Wednesday December 15th; All visitors will be screened upon entry to the facility. We ask that all family and friends complete a minimum of 2 rapid tests weekly if visiting daily. They can be obtained at a local library. All others are asked to do a rapid test within 24 hours of visiting. We ask that if you have been at any of the exposure sights for Eastern Zone or have travelled off Island in the last 2 weeks please refrain from visiting until you ensure that you have not been at any of the exposure sights and receive a negative PCR test.

Masks must be worn at all times while visiting, no eating or drinking or removing masks while visiting, social distancing of 6 feet must be maintained except for a brief hug.

Only 2 visitors at one time. If your loved one is in a semi-private room and there is already a visit taking place you will be asked to find another visiting space. We have cancelled our entertainments, and all private Christmas dinners that have been booked due to our inability to maintain social distancing. It is most unfortunate we face this situation again during the holiday season but our priority is to keep everyone safe.

Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions

I can be reached during business hours at 902-539-6110 ext. 222 or via email at jody.gentile@mggh.org.

Happy Holidays

Jody Gentile, Administrator/CEO
