Visitor Information

All of our staff, physicians, learners and volunteers are guided by Unity Health Toronto’s mission to provide compassionate physical, emotional and spiritual care to all in need. We remain committed to providing our patients, residents and families with excellent, high-quality care.

One of the best ways we can help each other is to be kind and compassionate. We ask for your patience as we continue to work together to create the best care experiences for all those we serve.

Masking is no longer a requirement for all interactions with patients at Unity Health.  While masking is now optional in most areas, all are welcome to continue masking in all areas. Masks remain available at all entrances and in clinical areas. This masking policy is based on recommendations from the Infection Prevention and Control team at Unity Health and reflects the current low to moderate COVID-19 community transmission. Masking requirements are subject to change depending on virus activity in the hospital and community, with the possibility that masking in all clinical areas may be required again if COVID-19 transmission increases.

  • Visitors who are feeling unwell should not visit.
  • Outpatients with respiratory symptoms should continue to mask.
  • It is strongly recommended that visitors/ECPs, vendors and contractors be up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccinations. Unity Health will no longer require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.
  • To create a safe environment for healing, Unity Health will continue to limit the number of people in our buildings. Only come to the hospital for the duration of your visit/appointment. Do not wait in our buildings before or after the visit/appointment.
  • Eating and drinking is only permitted in designated locations and never at the bedside.
  • For more information on visiting hours and the number of visitors/ECPs allowed to visit, see our Visitor Policy page.
  • When a unit is experiencing an outbreak, visitors may be restricted. See if the unit your loved one is staying on is in outbreak. If the patient you hope to visit is on a unit on outbreak, contact the unit the patient is on before visiting. You can find a unit by visiting our Clinic and Unit Contact Information page.
