Coronavirus: Alberta hits grim milestone of over 500 COVID-19 deaths| FULL

Effective immediately, there are new rules regarding visitation for Alberta Health Services acute care facilities under outbreak or in communities in the “enhanced zone” as Alberta continues to try and slow the spread of COVID-19.

For patients in hospital or ambulatory care — including the emergency room – and maternity and post-partum wards, only one designated family member or support person will be allowed. In the case of maternity wards, a doula or surrogate will also be permitted.

For pediatrics as well as NICU and critical care, up to two family members or designated support people will be allowed.

For any end-of-life situations, one designated family member or support person is allowed and any other visitors must be prearranged.

“We recognize that these restrictions are very difficult for patients, families, loved ones, staff and physicians, but these temporary measures are being implemented to help reduce exposure and spread of the virus in AHS facilities,” Dr. Deena Hinshaw said.

The changes came as Alberta’s chief medical officer of health announced Alberta had surpassed 500 deaths related to COVID-19.

Alberta Health confirmed an additional nine deaths on Wednesday, though the death toll only climbed by eight.

The province said a previous COVID-19 death was determined to not be related the virus.
