Your safety is paramount to us, followed by the safety of your loved ones and our clients, team members, and partners. Due to newly released guidelines by the Alberta government, in office appointments are available by appointment only. We know that many of you are concerned about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we share your concerns. To keep all of us safe, we will be doing mandatory COVID-19 screenings upon entry to our office. This will include screening questions, temperature assessment and sign-in.
It’s important to continue to follow the guidelines of our provincial and federal health agencies:
·Wash your hands often and well. Proper hand washing is superior to hand sanitizer in illness prevention. Refer to hand-washing guidance here.
·Avoid touching your face, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
·Clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched such as taps, fridge handles, doorknobs, and countertops. Clean often and follow the directions for disinfection, which often requires leaving the disinfectant wet on the surface for 4-10 minutes before wiping.
·Stay at home and away from others if you are feeling ill. The current recommendation is self-isolation: voluntary quarantine in your residence for 14 days.
·Avoid handshakes, hugs, and other close physical contact.
·When sick, cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue, dispose of tissues immediately, and then wash your hands. Refer to respiratory etiquette guidance here.
·Practice social distancing in crowds and meetings by maintaining a distance of 1 metre (3 feet) between you and others.
·Avoid sharing food and drinks with others.
·If you have travelled to anywhere deemed medium to high risk for COVID-19 (see travel advisories), or if you have been exposed to someone who is potentially ill with the virus, self-isolate for 14 days.
·Contact your primary health provider or Health Link by calling 811 if you have questions or concerns about your health. If you have symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing and have traveled outside Canada or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, stay home and call Health Link 811. If you are ill and think you require testing, do not go to a physician’s office, a health care facility or a lab without consulting Heath Link 811 first. Call 911 if you are seriously ill and need immediate medical attention and inform them that you may have COVID-19.
