A Note from the ELNOS office re: COVID-19

The ELNOS building remains open, though many businesses within the building are taking various precautions in light of current events. We encourage you to contact the office you intend to visit in advance of travelling to the building to make yourself aware of any closures or precautionary measures being taken at this time. The Family Health Team has posted the following message for their patients:

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 we are encouraging all patients to stay home and help stop the spread of illness. All non-essential appointments will be cancelled -- this includes ear syringe and most injections. You will receive a call from one of our staff very soon. Where possible, our physicians and staff will connect with their patients using the telephone or other virtual methods. Please contact the clinic if you feel you need to be seen. DO NOT go to the Emergency Room unless it is an emergency. We appreciate your patience with us while we work through this.
