Outdoor General Visitation 

Updated as of October 13th, 2021

All visits must be pre-booked. Pre-booking will allow us to safely porter, plan and facilitate visitation. We request bookings to be made 24 hours in advance. To book online, please follow this link: https://sjvisits.youcanbook.me/

  • Outdoor General Visitation is permitted in the immediate area of the home: this includes Lamoureux Park and/or other outdoor areas within the immediate area. 
    • We are requesting that groups larger than five (5) use Lamoureux Park, as outdoor on-site space is limited. 
  • Outdoor General Visitation is open 7 days/week from 1030 – 1830.
  • All general visitors need to enter SJCCC to be actively screened prior to visiting with the resident/patient. You must enter at the front entrance of the building to do so (this includes all pre-registered visitors)
  • Food and/or drink is not permitted during Outdoor General Visitation at this time. Residents/patients should be encouraged to wear a mask for the duration of their visit, as tolerated.
  • General visitors are responsible for signing out the resident/patient at the beginning of their visit and signing the resident/patient in upon their return to SJCCC.
  • General visitors are responsible for the wellbeing of the resident/patient while on their scheduled outdoor general visit. If at any time the resident/patient becomes unwell during your visit, please return them to the Centre immediately or call 911 in case of an emergency.
  • All General Visitation is suspended when a resident/patient is in isolation or the Home/Unit area is on an outbreak.
  • If you and the resident/patient that you are visiting is fully vaccinated you may:
    • Choose to have close physical contact and touch (e.g hugging, holding hands) beyond what is required for care and supervision. 
    • You must have your medical mask and practice regular hand hygiene at all times.
  • If you and the resident/patient that you are visiting is partially/non vaccinated you may:
    • Participate in a brief hug and physical distance at all other times.
    • You must wear your medical mask and practice regular hand hygiene at all times.

Please note: Outdoor General Visitation is booked on a first-come-first-serve basis. When possible, please coordinate with other family members/friends who plan to visit your loved one to ensure everyone is allotted their time. Visitations that are double-booked will need to be rescheduled. Weather will be monitored and your visitation may have to be rescheduled. You will be contacted if so.  

Prior to your first visit, we ask that you review these posters:

Hand Hygiene


Physical Distancing
