COVID-19 – Staying Healthy Virtually

Staying Healthy Virtually

The COVID-19 crisis has created an unprecedented challenge for our healthcare system.  Social distancing and self-isolation practices have also forced businesses to reduce their hours or close completely. To keep you and your family healthy, we wanted to provide you with healthcare resources that can be accessed from the comfort of your own home.

General Practitioners

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, some General Practitioners and Family Physicians are now offering appointments either online or by phone.  Contact your General Practitioner to find out what alternatives they have available to traditional, in-person appointments.
