• Hand sanitizer will be readily available and required prior to entering the office and in all treatment rooms. • Our Team will screen each patient. • Appointments are spaced to permit social distancing and limiting the number of patients in the clinic for care at a given time. • OHG’s healthcare providers will wear masks while caring for you. Our Team will be wearing masks if safe social distancing is not possible. A plexiglass barrier is set up between front desk and reception area. • Patients are strongly encouraged to wear their own mask to their scheduled appointment and if you do not have a mask we do have masks for purchase. • All Appointments must be scheduled in advance to avoid contact between patients. NO walk-in patients are permitted.

• Patients are required to enter the Clinic only at the time of their scheduled appointment. • We ask only the person who is scheduled for the appointment to enter the clinic unless assistance is required. Patients are required to complete a self- assessment screening prior to entering the clinic by answering the following questions: 1. Do you have a fever, chills? 2. Do you have a cough? 3. Do you have shortness of breath or difficulty breathing? 4. Have you been in close contact with a person who has confirmed Covid-19 or is under investigation for Covid-19 in the past 14 days? 5. Have you or anyone from your household travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days?
