Important Pandemic Info

We are actively trying to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by taking measures to limit the risk of infection to our patients and our staff.  Please be advised of the following:

  1. Masks are required for all persons entering the clinic.  This is consistent with current public health guidelines for people in public spaces.
  2. Staff will be asking screening questions to all patients for potential signs and symptoms of COVID-19 including:
    • Fever
    • Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Runny nose or nasal congestion
    • Diarrhea
    • Recent travel from outside of Manitoba or from a COVID-19 hotspot within Manitoba
    • Recent contact with someone known to have COVID-19
  3. Anyone with risk-factors for COVID-19 is encouraged to do a rapid antigen test at home prior to attending the clinic.  This is limit the risk of viral spread to other patients and to our team members.
  4. All patients with respiratory symptoms will be placed in a room as soon as possible in an effort to avoid the main waiting room.
  5. Only the patient will be permitted into the clinic.  If an escort is required, please advise the staff.  This is to allow for greater social distancing in our waiting area and exam rooms.
    • In the case of children, we ask that only one parent attend with the child
  6. All patients will be asked to sanitize their hands with either alcohol-based sanitizer OR soap and water upon entering the clinic.  We encourage all patients to also sanitize their hands prior to leaving the facility.
