Before your appointment:

- Regulators require mandatory daily Covid -19 Pre-screening of Patients & Staff.

  • Pre-screening is the most important step in preventing the spread of Covid-19.

    • The goal is to identify anyone at risk of spreading Covid-19 and making sure they stay home if they have even the slightest symptoms.

    • Patients should cancel their appointment if they have any of the symptoms listed on the survey that are not related to a known pre-existing condition or a suspected injury. Call us and we can advise how to proceed.

      • If you are not sure if your symptoms qualify, call us and we will assist you.

      • There will be no cancellation fees for Covid related cancellations.

      • Try to give us as much notice as possible, so we can try to fill your spot.


  • Please check your email regularly as you will receive a Pre-screening Survey within 24hours of each appointment. This is mandatory.

    • If you don’t fill out the email survey, we will have to call you and screen you over the phone prior to your appointment.


  • Patients will also be pre-screened by their practitioner at the time of their appointment.

    • Patients will be required to fill out and sign a Covid 19 Patient Declaration & Consent Form

    • This screening may include temperature testing (forehead thermometer) and oxygen testing (pulse oximeter) if required.


  • Staff is pre-screened daily (including temperature and oxygen levels with a pulse oximeter).

    • Staff will not be able to go to work if they have any symptoms related to Covid-19.

      • We will always err on the side of caution.

      • BC CDC guidelines will be used for monitoring symptoms, determining if testing is required, and assessing when to return to work.

  • Please be accept our apology if we have to cancel your appointment on short notice and be assured that we will reschedule you as soon as possible.
