Winnipeg family denied hospital room visit due to unvaccinated patient sharing room – CTV

WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg family is speaking out after not being able to visit their loved one in hospital because they were transferred into a room with an unvaccinated patient.

Sabrina Foxworthy’s sister was admitted into the Health Sciences Centre ICU on July 8 with life-threatening injuries.

“We were able to visit because it was so life and death, and she may very well pass away,” said Foxworthy.

After about two weeks in intensive care, Foxworthy’s sister was moved to a step-down unit and given a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“So when she had her second dose, they said once she was out of the step-down unit and into a regular unit, and was two weeks past the second dose, we could start visiting again,” Foxworthy said.
