Staff and patient safety is our priority. If you call to book an appointment, or attend a pre-booked appointment, you may be screened for symptoms of Coronavirus.

Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is actively monitoring the 2019 Novel Coronavirus and is in close contact with the World Health Organization and provinces to assess the situation and any potential risk to Canadians. At this time PHAC has assessed the risk as low for Canada and for Canadian travelers. As with other viruses of this nature, transmission is thought to occur via respiratory droplets.

Symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing

If you are experiencing a cough, fever and or shortness of breath and have traveled to ANY affected area, have had close contact with an individual who has traveled to an affected area, or have had close contact with a confirmed or probable 2019-ncov case, DO NOT come to the office.   Please proceed to your nearest ER department.

However, as a reminder, Public Health always recommends everyday steps to help prevent the spread of germs and viruses:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
