Coronavirus Update

If you have a cough and/or fever AND you or someone close to you has travelled anywhere outside Canada in the last 14 days or you have interacted with someone who has COVID-19 or has travelled outside of Canada, PLEASE call Telehealth (1-866-797-0000) or your local public health unit for further direction. 

Two new assessment centres have been set up at Trillium Health Partners.  You are still required to call Telehealth or public health first.  However, if your situation is urgent, you can also go straight to the Emergency Department at the Mississauga site or the Credit Valley site of the hospital and you will be screened and sent directly to the assessment centre if necessary. 

If you have returned from travel outside Canada and do NOT have symptoms, you do NOT need to be assessed.  However, you should self-isolate for 14 days from your return into the country.

We continue to ask you to call our clinics before coming in.  We are trying to reduce the number of people who might be exposed to any infectious disease and keep our patients healthy and safe.  All non-essential visits (e.g. results follow-ups, prescription renewals, mild cold/flu) will be replaced by a phone call or virtual care, where possible.  You may also be asked to reschedule non-urgent appointments such as annual physicals.

Unfortunately, we have also had to cancel a number of our patient education programs until further notice.  If you have registered for any of these programs, you will be notified by phone.
