We just wanted to keep you aware of what Vaughan Pediatric Clinic is doing to continue to provide medical care to our patients and to keep you safe. We have just started a screening policy to ensure that any individuals at risk of having or spreading Novel Corona Virus 2019 (also called Wuhan coronavirus or 2019-nCoV) are identified immediately and then sent to their nearest health facility for isolation and treatment.
The Questionnaire is as follows:
- Does your child have fever and significant respiratory/flu-like symptoms?
examples: coughing, stuffy/runny nose, difficulty breathing.
- Have you or has your child traveled to China in the last 14 days?
- Have you or has your child been in close contact with any sick family members or household contacts who have traveled to China in the last 14 days?
- Have you or has your child been in close contact with anyone with a suspected or confirmed case of 2019-nCoV
If anyone answers ‘yes’ to question 1 AND ‘yes’ to any subsequent question(s), then that person should proceed immediately to the nearest hospital facility for further evaluation.
