Physical Distancing + Capacity Limits
Physical distancing and capacity limits
- Capacity limits for waiting rooms/areas are no longer required in acute care facilities.
- Physical distancing or maintaining a distance of two metres between two or more people is no longer required; instead, people should respect personal space.
- Unvaccinated staff and health care workers in long-term care and seniors' assisted living facilities should maintain a two metre distance from others at all times when eating food and in break rooms.
- When there are patients/residents with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 illness, but single room accommodation is not available, maintain a physical distance of two metres between the bed spaces of all roommates.
Physical barriers that were installed during the COVID-19 pandemic should be kept in place if they do not impede normal operations.
