***All patients are required to complete the BC COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool prior to their appointment.***
In addition, Meaghan Jones will contact patients the day prior to their scheduled appointment to inquire about presence of COVID-19 symptoms. Also, to assure that the patient has not been outside of British Columbia for the past 14 days.
If you have any of the following symptoms please do not schedule an appointment.
Please note that symptoms can range from mild to severe. Sometimes people with COVID-19 have mild illness, but their symptoms may suddenly worsen in a few days. People infected with COVID-19 may also experience gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea, nausea and vomiting a few days after the onset of the above symptoms. It you only have gastrointestinal symptoms you may not have COVID-19.
Upon arrival patients will be required to complete a Covid-19 self-questionnaire confirming or ruling out the presence of COVID-19 symptoms. This form must be completed at the clinic and witnessed by Meaghan.
