- Sanitize hands prior to entering the clinic
- Maintain a distance of 2 metres between people

We will not be able to provide letters or documentation stating you or your child is COVID-19 free. Only testing for COVID-19 can confirm this.
Also note that the increased pressure of the Pandemic may lead to some delays in the delivery of our usual services. We are doing our best to adhere to our usual turnaround times for prescription renewals (2 weeks), call-backs for lab work (1 week from reporting) and forms (30 days from receipt). However, we thank you for your understanding regarding any delays.
Working together, we can continue to stay healthy and safe during these challenging times.
