PLEASE NOTE: OUR OFFICES ARE OPEN
In an effort to protect our patients we request that no patient come to the office without first calling for appropriate screening. Our calls with patients do take longer due to screening purposes, so at times the phone lines may be busy, please call back.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might be causing you. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Going forward, if you have an appointment in person with a health team provider at Chatham Kent Family Health Team, please wear your own mask (homemade or otherwise). Please ensure the mask covers both your nose and mouth.
Please be advised that due to the current public health emergency underway, you may experience your scheduled appointments being postponed or cancelled. This will help us focus our work towards managing the pandemic. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. However, we may be delayed in getting back to you because of a high volume of patients seeking care.
With the outbreak of the Coronavirus, when booking an appointment, we ask that you PLEASE let the staff know if you have a fever or new/worsening cough. To avoid the potential spread of infection, DO NOT go to the clinic without first calling. This will help our staff to do the right things to care for you and for the other people in the clinic at that time.
If you have traveled outside Canada in the past 14 days, follow the guidance of Public Health on the need for self-isolation, such as staying at home, avoiding close contact with others, and washing your hands vigilantly. We appreciate your help in this matter and look forward to keeping our clinic a safe place for all.
