During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making some changes to ensure you protect your health and access to care:
Video appointments: Many appointments are being offered via a secure video link on your cellphone. Call to book a new video or telephone appointment if you think you may not need to be examined.
We will not be providing sick notes for work at present – the Provincial Health Officer is asking employers to adapt their policies in a time of world crisis.
“All employers must waive the requirement for employees to produce a sick note. Please don’t go to the doctor to get a sick note.”
(also, the Government of Canada is presently waiving the need for a Medical Certificate for employment insurance benefits)
Driver Medical Examination Reports:
RoadSafetyBC is temporarily suspending the requirement for Driver Medical Examination Reports – if you have an appointment for a DMER, please call our office to cancel as we will not be completing these reports until RoadSafetyBC resumes this requirement.
Cold and flu symptoms:
If you are ill, please complete the brief symptom checker on this website http://www.abbotsfordcovidresponse.com/ and you will be contacted to be evaluated at the Community COVID Screening Centre if it is appropriate. If you still have concerns and questions, please book a video or phone appointment through our office as above.
