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.

Please feel free to call us at 250-304-8700 or email us at if you have any questions.
