Update: COVID-19 Outbreak at Windsor Regional Hospital

Windsor Regional Hospital is continuing to experience outbreaks of COVID-19 on multiple in-patient units.

To date, a total of 63 patients have tested positive for COVID-19 on the following units:

Met Campus:

  • 7 North
  • 6 North
  • 5 North
  • 4 North
  • 4 West

Ouellette Campus:

  • 2 North
  • 6 East
  • 7 Medical

The majority of patients are currently not experiencing any symptoms. All patients are being monitored for any signs and symptoms and are actively being tested for COVID-19.

In order to reduce the likelihood of spread, and to protect our patients, staff and visitors, we are restricting visitation to 2 fully vaccinated visitors per patient for the duration of the outbreak. All visitors must comply with masking requirements.

Due to the volume of patients impacted by these outbreaks, we are recommending that anyone discharged from hospital self-monitor for symptoms and attempt to self-isolate for 10 days following discharge.

Precautions remain in place across both campuses and on all units to identify potential outbreaks early. All patients are tested for COVID-19 on admission into hospital and again following admission to hospital, whether they are symptomatic or not.
