Victoria Health Care Workers Free Accommodations during 2020 Pandemic
If you're an active front line Health Care worker in one of our local hospitals needing self-isolation from family, or just a peaceful place to catch your breath we have self-contained suites with private entrances available to you without charge. Here is what you need to know:
If accepted you will be asked to practice good hygene just like you would at work minimizing the possibility of bringing the virus on to the property. You will also be expected to keep your suite clean and place all garbage and food waste in the corresponding containers outside. Social distancing on the property will be easy as you're likely to be only one of 2 or 3 people on the grounds at any given time, if not all by yourself.
This is limited to 1 person / suite, not multiple people sharing even if you work together. Family / friends are not permitted to come for visits. We want to strictly control who is on the property at all times. Please read the information on the corresponding suites for ammenities information.

Vancouver Island came through this pandemic with exceptionally low numbers thanks to our community who followed Dr. Bonnie Henry's professional and kind guidance. This free program ran from March 15 to end of May and has now been concluded. Thank you to those of you that left us kind REVIEWS
Thank you also to the front line health care workers who stayed with us and from whom we ourselves learned valuable safety protocols which we have implemented for our guests.
