WHAT TO EXPECT - SITE SPECIFIC UPDATES

Last Updated: March 25, 2020

Brandon Clinic West

Walk-In remains open. 

Staff will continue to screen outside prior to entering the facility.

Brandon Clinic Main

(620 Dennis Street)

Staff will continue to screen each individual requiring entrance to the facility.

 

We are STRONGLY advising anyone who does NOT have a scheduled appointment to NOT come to the clinic.

In accordance with provincial health advice, the Brandon Clinic is encouraging patients to seek further screening and guidance at provincially-designated locations and avoid attending our office unnecessarily or going to work if feeling unwell.

On March 12, 2020 Manitoba's Chief Provincial Public Health Officer directed all employers to "take steps to ensure their employees can stay home when ill, without facing barriers such as the requirement for sick notes".

Therefore, the Brandon Clinic is not providing sick notes at this time for flu- or COVID-19- related reasons, so that patients with these symptoms avoid unnecessary visits to our office. If your employer requests a sick note please advise them of this recommendation by Chief Provincial Public Health Officer.
