Important information regarding COVID-19

Please call the office prior to your visit/appointment: 905-852-3339. We are trying to reduce unnecessary exposures to patients and staff.

Symptoms of COVID-19: fever, cough, shortness of breath, tiredness/fatigue, headache, sore throat, runny nose and/or diarrhea.

People aged 65 and over, with compromised immune systems and with underlying medical issues are at highest risk of severe outcomes.

The risk for COVID-19 may also be increased in settings such as cruise ships, heavily affected areas and international conferences and other large gatherings in enclosed spaces.

If you are a traveller returning from international travel:

  • Isolate at home for 14 days. See instructions HERE and for caregivers HERE.
  • Monitor yourself for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Use this SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOL to help you guide if you need further care HERE.
  • Contact Durham Region Health Department at 905-668-2020 or 1-800-841-2729 for further instructions, which may or may not include testing.

If you have worsening symptoms and are not coping at home:

Please go to your closest Emergency Department or dial 9-1-1.

Most people if infected with COVID-19 will likely have mild symptoms. Only certain patients and/or groups of people will require testing. Testing you if you only have mild symptoms will not change your treatment: stay home, drink plenty of fluids, take acetaminophen as needed and self-isolate to prevent spreading to others. However, if your symptoms are worsening, please seek medical care and follow the strict policies in place to protect you and your healthcare providers.

If you have a non-COVID 19 concern:

Please call the office. You will be given information to wait for a ‘telephone appointment’ from your physician. Your physician will review your symptoms and concerns over the phone; please be reassured that if this is an issue that cannot be resolved over the phone, your physician will then make an in-person appointment for you to review further.

What can I do to protect myself and others?

  • Practice good hand hygiene:
    • Wash your hands with soap and water.
    • Do not touch your face, nose, mouth or eyes
    • Clean and/or sanitize items and surfaces that are touched often – handles, doorknobs, keyboards, phones
  • Practice social distancing
    • Limit face-to-face encounters
    • Keep a distance of about 2 meters between yourself and others
    • Work from home if possible
    • Avoid large gatherings
    • Send one person per household to buy groceries once per week
  • Avoid visiting at hospitals and senior’s homes if you are unwell
  • Avoid going to the emergency department UNLESS FOR EMERGENCIES
  • Be prepared: have basic food supplies, canned/frozen foods, diapers and wipes if you have children and other basic household item
