Due to the risk of spread of COVID-19 and updated direction from Alberta Health, our clinic will actively screen all patients in person and by phone for symptoms and risk factors of COVID-19.
Some patients may find this inconvenient, but it is our responsibility to ensure we are doing all that we can to limit spread. If even one member of our staff become infected or exposed, we risk shutting down the entire clinic for a period of time.
If you are having cough, fever, or shortness of breath, but are otherwise well, self-isolate and please do not attend the clinic.
We ask patients to contact 811 (be persistent as they are receiving high call volume) to talk to a nurse who will arrange a time and place to swab you for COVID-19.
You can now take a self-assessment online at https://www.ahs.com/COVID which will direct you on next steps for your care.
Self-isolation instructions can be found at this link:

If you are having trouble breathing with the above symptoms please go to your nearest Emergency Department or call 911. Please phone the Emergency Department prior to your visit to give them advanced notice, so they can be prepared and avoid quarantining a whole crew of staff.
Thank you for your understanding.
