As you will see on arrival, the Atrium Building, central entrance and front lobby is connected to the patient areas of the hospital as well as various staff office areas. While on our hospital campus we would like to remind you of the following: 

* Like other health care settings, Waypoint has requirements in place to protect staff and patients by preventing the spread of COVID-19 within the facility. Masks are no longer required. Community members are asked to screen themselves for COVID-19 symptoms and not attend if feeling unwell. 
* Community members are encouraged to use hand sanitizer when entering the facility.  
* The program may be changed in the case of a widespread outbreak at Waypoint. 
* Like all public hospitals, protecting our patients' privacy is a legislated requirement. Please be respectful of our patients and their confidentiality and privacy. 
* Photography is not allowed on the campus.
* Waypoint is a non-smoking campus and smoking is not allowed anywhere on the grounds. 

Paid parking is in effect at Waypoint and our parking lots require parking permits. Town staff will hand out complimentary parking permits for Lot C, to each family during the registration period at Town Hall. Your parking permit must be always displayed in your vehicle while on Hospital or risk a parking ticket. Parking is enforced by Hospital Security and is dictated under the municipal by-law.  

The community is welcome in our front entrance, front lobby and hallway leading to the pool corridor. 

Please ensure that you and your children do not enter areas of the hospital closed to the public. This includes not entering the Toanche and Administration building where the doors are closed, and the downstairs auditorium area of the Atrium Building. 

We would appreciate your support by always monitoring your children and being mindful of our hospital environment for patients with respect to noise levels, running and not leaving bags, toys, purses etc. unmonitored or in traffic areas. 

Please ensure you are aware of the location of the fire exit in the pool corridor. If you are in the main lobby the fire exit is the front entrance of the building.

Weapons or weapon-like items of any kind are not permitted on grounds. Please review what you are bringing to the hospital in your coats, bags or car.
