Please do not work while sick!

To ensure the safety of our patients, clients, residents and each other, all health-care workers and medical staff should not be working if they are sick — even if your symptoms are minor (e.g. a cold). As of March 17, if you are a health-care worker or medical staff and feel sick, you should:

  1. Put on a mask
  2. Finish any essential services you are providing
  3. Get tested
  4. Go home

If you are a health-care provider or medical staff and feel sick at work, you should:

  • Clean your hands and put on a mask
  • Hand over essential services that you were providing
  • Go to the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre and be assessed
  • If you are assessed and require COVID-19 testing, be tested and go home. Remain at home, and await your COVID-19 test results which will take approximately 24 hours. Your results will be phoned to you or you may view them at ehealth if you already have an account.
    • I tested COVID-19 positive
      • Please await guidance from Public Health. Refer to the VCH website for the most up-to-date recommendations for self-isolation.
    •  I tested COVID-19 negative
      • You may return to work when you are well enough (as you would for any other cold or flu situation)
