COVID 19 UPDATE – JULY 15, 2021
Courtenay Medical Clinic maintains keeping the health and safety of our patients, staff, and physicians our main priority.
We would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all of our patients who have respected our workplace Covid-19 policies over these past number of months. We appreciate your kindness and patience.
We will continue to follow the guidance of the BC Provincial Health Office, B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons, WorkSafe BC and the BCCDC as we consider further re-opening plans to the clinic.
All physicians will continue telemedicine visits with our patients to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
Prescriptions can be faxed to your pharmacy of choice once your physician has discussed your care with you.
Please call our reception for an appointment, and we will determine whether your needs can be managed by Telemedicine or a face-to-face visit.
Phone call volume has increased due to limiting traffic within the clinic and we appreciate your patience. We have increased our number of phone lines in the past year and will soon introduce online booking.
We remain open Monday to Friday to serve you. All visits and services require a booked appointment. Please call to schedule your injection appointments with the nurse, as well during the pandemic our evening clinics will be closed.
Please consult our COVID-19 Safety Plan for more information.
ALL VISITS AND SERVICES REQUIRE A BOOKED APPOINTMENT
This injections. Please call to schedule an available time.
- All our physicians and staff are fully vaccinated
- We encourage all our patients ages 12 and over to get vaccinated
- We will gladly discuss concerns and fears regarding vaccinations. Book a phone call with your family physician who knows you and your health best for an open-minded conversation. Our COVID knowledge is up to date and we have your best interest at heart.
- We support reading accurate information regarding COVID in contrast to a parallel pandemic of misinformation. Good sources of information are:
Treating unvaccinated patients:
To reduce the risk of unvaccinated patients coming into contact with vulnerable patients, such as those with suppressed immune systems, we will schedule appointments at different times of the day or week (e.g. end of the day) for those who are unvaccinated.
What can you do?
Stay at home. Practice social isolation. Only go to the shops to get necessities. Stay 2-3m away from other people. Don’t panic. Don’t hoard -we all need to share supplies. Don’t take supplies from medical offices – we need it to take care of all our other patients. We have very limited supplies and are running very low already and our suppliers are out of stock. Our doctors have to pay for it personally. There is no magic funding or government handout.
Wash your hands with soap. Often and for long enough to sing the ABC. Hand sanitizer is good too, but nothing beats soap.
Cough into your elbow. Don’t touch your face.
Coughs or colds
All patients who have a cough are expected to put on a mask before entering the waiting room. Apply hand sanitizer. Let us know when you book your appointment that you have a cough so we can check that you do not possibly have a corona virus infection – there are other steps to then take to care for you .
If you misrepresent your symptoms and see a physician without giving them the chance to protect themselves from infection and in the process endanger other patients in the waiting room and our staff, this can be considered a form of assault and we may dismiss you from our clinic.
All new coughs and colds should get a COVID test for the duration of the Pandemic. Book by calling: 1-844-901-8442
At this time Courtney Medical Clinic is not taking on new patients. We do not have a waitlist for new patients. We ask that you register online for CV Health Connect Registry.
Flu vaccinations and clinics
Our 2021 flu clinics dates: October 30, November 6. Both will be outside in the parking lot. If you are able to park away and walk up we would appreciate it. We will hold the parking spots for those who cannot get out of their vehicles.
We will be calling to set up appointments. If you are new to our clinic, please contact the office to be added to the lists.
