Sleep care - COVID-19

Mask is mandatory

Since January 2021, the Institut national de santé publique du Québec has been advising that anyone who visits a health institution to receive care or services should wear a medical mask.

In order to protect everyone who visits our service centres and to help reduce the risk of contagion, you will be invited to replace your mask with the new medical mask that will be given to you upon your arrival.

Wearing the mask may be exempted under certain circumstances:

  • 12 years old and under: recommended, not mandatory
  • 2 years old and under: not recommended, not mandatory
  • Medical condition (please mention it to the receptionist upon your arrival)
