Important: Winter Health Update

With Influenza and other winter illnesses, including COVID-19, prevalent in the community we all need to take extra care to keep everyone safe.

Please be aware that ANY cold and flu symptoms and/or stomach upsets may affect your surgery. If you have any cold or flu symptoms please contact your surgeon’s rooms for advice.  All patients and approved visitors are required to wear a mask while at Forté Hospital.

Your surgeon will also need to know if you have tested positive for COVID-19 up to 8 weeks before your scheduled surgery as a recent COVID-19 infection can pose a health risk for those undergoing surgery, even if you are recovered.
