The main entrance to the Peterborough Regional Health Centre has reopened after it was temporarily closed earlier this month while the hospital installed touchless sliding doors in an effort to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Access to the hospital through its cancer care centre is now closed, while the emergency room entrance remains open to emergency patients.
