Island Health has provided the Cortes Clinic with guidelines on how to examine patients that may need testing for COVID-19.
We will take precautions with all patients displaying flu like symptoms and remind patients to please call before coming to the clinic.
We will follow the Island Health guidelines as this is the best way to protect our patients.
These guidelines can be found on the Island Health website https://www.islandhealth.ca/sites/default/files/mho/newsletter/mho-newsletter-314-covid-19-27Feb2020.pdf
