In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Health Centre has implemented their plan to protect clients and staff. Public health agencies and governments are recommending social distancing measures to help curb the spread of the virus. The following precautions are in-place across all sites of the CHC:
If you do have an in-person visit at the CHC, here is what you can expect:
Please come alone (unless you are bringing a child or someone who needs support).
You will be asked a series of COVID-19 screening questions from the Ministry of Health – it’s not a test but please answer honestly. You will still receive care, regardless of your answers!
Our reception and CHC team will greet you as usual but their smile will be hidden by a mask if they cannot maintain distance.
Based on risk, type of appointment, etc., your care provider will be wearing personal protective equipment (which could include a mask, face shield, medical gown). Please don’t be intimidated – it’s the same friendly faces under the equipment!
Group programs are being delivered virtually. See our Upcoming Events for program calendars.
The following sites are closed or have limited hours: Kettle Point and Watford – phone appointments still available
Hours are temporarily limited so please call before attending
If you have any questions, just call!

We want to have as many people vaccinated as we can.
