NEWS RELEASE
FAMILY PHYSICIANS OF ORILLIA
********************

Due to the current and impending COVID-19 pandemic, our offices will be making temporary changes in the way we deliver your care. Our goal is to minimize potential exposure to as many people as possible, while freeing up resources to attend to those who require urgent care.

Starting immediately, we will no longer be booking routine appointments. If you have an appointment scheduled currently, you will be contacted to cancel or amend this appointment. 

Additionally, we will be reviewing our schedules and incoming appointments. Those that can be accomplished safely by telephone or a virtual visit (information to follow) will be booked as such. Those visits that are of a more urgent nature and require an in-person visit will still be offered this option.

In order to help reduce the spread of the virus, we ask for your help.

If you have respiratory symptoms (cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat, difficulty breathing), have travelled outside of the country, or have had contact with someone with respiratory symptoms and travel, we ask that you stay home.

Please do not attend our offices without calling for instruction. For more information you can call: Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000 or Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit at 705-721-7520.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this. These changes will be regularly assessed and are in place until further notice.
