Over the next three weeks, Stonegate CHC will be operating at the reduced hours of 8:30 – 4:00 pm each day. If you call to schedule an appointment, an appointment time will be booked for your provider to telephone you. If the provider decides they need to have you in for an examination or blood work, they will book an onsite appointment for you at the Centre. When you come to Stonegate for an appointment, you will be asked to sanitize your hands and put on a mask. You will be asked if you have a cough or fever.
PLEASE NOTE: The Medical Officer of Health has advised:
- All persons over 70 years of age and individuals who are immunocompromised are advised to self-isolate for a period of 14 days. This means that you should only leave your home or see other people for essential reasons. Where possible, you should seek services over the phone or internet or ask for help from friends, family or neighbours with essential errands.
- Everyone in Ontario should be practicing social distancing to reduce their exposure to other people. This means that you can carry out daily activities, such as going to work (if you cannot work from home) and doing necessary shopping and appointments.
- That everyone in Ontario does their best to avoid close contact with people outside of their immediate families. Close contact includes being within 2 meters of another person.
