To protect patients, families and our teams we are screening everyone entering our clinics. This is to ensure people who may be at risk of having the virus are identified and are note seen in the clinic. Redirecting those who screen positive not only protects the individual, but also all of our patients and staff within our clinics.
PCC continues to use hospital grade disinfectant which also destroys COVID-19 on any surface. All facilities are meticulously cleaned and regularly inspected for infection control.
We are limiting visitors to help reduce the spread of the disease by decreasing the volume of people gathered in one space.
We have implemented 14 days of self-isolation for all PCC staff if they have travelled outside of Canada or have been in contact with anyone that has travelled outside of Canada.
All of us can take some easy steps to protect ourselves and others. The best protection is to wash our hands many times a day or use alcohol-based sanitizer. When we are unwell, stay home. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough and sneeze and avoid touching your face. We do understand that this is a difficult and stressful time for everyone. We sincerely thank you for your efforts in helping contain the spread of the virus which helps protect you, your family, and all those who are considered to be vulnerable in our community.
