  • If you are booked an appointment for a face-to-face visit with one of the Primary Care Staff:

– You must wear a face mask, if you do not have one then one will be provided at the door
– You will be screened prior to your appointment by answering a few questions on the telephone.
– When you arrive for your appointment we ask that you come on time and not early, as a staff member will come down to let you in the locked doors at the time of the appointment.
– The entrance for Primary Care is on the West side of the building through the gated entrance. There will be posted signage on both the parking lot and entrance door.
– If you require assistance with mobility and can not use the stairs please notify our staff BEFORE you come for your appointment.
– Our staff will do our part to protect you by wearing appropriate protective equipment and by performing extra cleaning before and after appointments.
