In-patient visits: allowed again
From 22 February 2022
Following the favourable evolution of the epidemic and as part of an overall easing of the associated constraints, the management of the Baclesse Centre has decided to lift the ban on visits to hospitalised patients from 22 February 2022. Family rooms are also reopened on the hospital floors.
- Visits are allowed every day from 1pm to 8pm on the inpatient wards,
- EXCEPT for the protected area on the 7th floor: NO VISIT ALLOWED.
For reasons of safety and hygiene in the health context: – Wearing a mask is compulsory in the room, – In a single room: maximum 2 visitors at the same time, – In double rooms: only one visitor per patient at a time.
What proof do I need to have a valid health pass?
Under the Health Crisis Management Act of 10 November 2021.
One of these documents is required:
- Certificate of vaccination (with full initial schedule less than 6 months old or booster)
- Positive test result for recovery (i.e. more than 11 days and less than 6 months old)
- Negative screening test less than 24 hours old (by RT-PCR or antigenic or pharmacist supervised self-test)
- Medical certificate of contraindication to temporary or permanent vaccination
Patients admitted in emergency are not subject to the requirements of the health pass. All other patients admitted for scheduled care are subject to the provisions of the law. They must present their health pass at the screening checkpoints set up at the entrance to the Center.
For accompanying persons and visitors
In application of the law, accompanying persons and visitors are required to present their health pass at the screening points when entering the François Baclesse Centre, in order to protect health.
