Yes our office remains open to serve you but we have modified our ways to keep everyone safe. Our staff is there during business hours to answer your calls.
Our goal is to decrease in person visits during the pandemic. Before you decide to come in to drop off or pick up forms, please consider alternatives. Many forms can be downloaded for example. Our staff can help you to find the appropriate solution.
We will help you but please consider our office safety and do not arrive to our office without warning if you have symptoms. First, self-isolate, consider getting tested. If you need care, please call first to book a phone consultation. If your breathing is compromised or your condition is severe, call 911 and go to the emergency department.
Whether you come to our office or go somewhere else, wear a MASK, WASH YOUR HANDS frequently, practice 2-meter SOCIAL DISTANCING. Reduce your outings to the essential ones, especially when the number of COVID-19 cases in your area is high. Follow the current public health and government guidelines about social gatherings in your area. Get your FLU SHOT: see our section on our flu shot clinics. Eat healthy: consult the 2019 Canada Food Guide. Consult the public health website for up to date information on COVID-19.
At the time of this publication, there are no clinical criteria allowing your doctor to distinguish accurately covid related illness from other viral illnesses without testing. For this reason, we are unable to provide medical notes clearing you or your child for COVID-19 if you have new symptoms on the COVID-19 list. However, if you need a note about a chronic or long lasting condition, we will consider your case and provide the necessary documentation. A charge will apply.
The Ministry of health has a great tool to help you decide what to do if your child has symptoms.
Consider downloading COVID Alert which is the exposure notification app recommended by the government of Canada. It is free of charge. Consult this link for details:
This app keeps track of your exposure to other users of the app and notifies you if you have been in proximity for at least 15 minutes to a COVID case. The app. preserves your privacy and keeps you anonymous. The more people who use it, the more effective it will be to limit the spread of COVID-19.
