Staff Screening - COVID-19

Please read the current Staff Screening Questions and Guidance (updated Nov. 16, 2021).  It’s essential that we take the screening process seriously. The health and safety of everyone in our hospitals depends on keeping COVID-19 at bay. We all help make that happen by being appropriately screened before coming to work.

You may be instructed to self-isolate at work. Review Work Isolation at KHSC here.
