Frequently Asked Questions:

My child has been home from school / daycare due to COVID-19. Do I need to see a doctor for them to return?

If your child has been experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or has been isolating due to a COVID-19 exposure, a medical note is NOT REQUIRED for your child to return to school / daycare. Please follow your specific school board / daycare instructions with regards to steps required for returning.

 

General information from the Ministry of Health can be found here.

I am due for my annual physical. Should I book an appointment?

Due to the current community spread of COVID-19 and in an effort to manage risk to our patients and staff it is recommended to defer in-person adult physicals. In lieu of a physical we invite patients to book a telephone appointment with their family doctor to order any necessary screening tests and renew prescriptions as appropriate. If your MD feels it necessary to see you in-person they will arrange that appointment.
