INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19
Due to the recent cases of COVID – 19 within the Province, Ontario Public Health department has advised that we inform our patients of the protocols in place for screening patients before they come to our clinic for an appointment.
The following are their recommendations:
If you have any of the following symptoms: cough, runny nose, sneezing, sinus congestion, sore throat, temperature and breathing difficulties and you or someone close to you has recently travelled outside the country or interacted with someone with COVID-19, PLEASE CALL TELEHEALTH (1-866-797-0000) or your local Public Health Unit for further direction and testing. To avoid the spread of infection, DO NOT COME TO CLINICS or HOSPITALS before calling first and be READY TO SELF ISOLATE if necessary.
Instructions for self-isolation:
· STAY HOME, AVOID CONTACT WITH OTHERS
· Wash hands vigilantly, cover coughs/sneezes, wear a mask if available
· Do not come into the clinics or hospitals
· Call Telehealth (1-866-797-0000) or your local public health unit (416-338-7600 for TORONTO) for further direction and testing
Thanks for your cooperation,
