Covid Pre-screening Questions
I declare that:
- I have not travelled outside Canada in the last 15 days
- I have not had contact with anyone who has travelled outside Canada in the last 15 days
Are you experiencing any of the symptoms below?
- Sore throat, hoarse voice, difficulty swallowing
- Headached, runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing
- Muscle aches, chills, unexplained fatigue/malaise
- Loss of sense of smell, or taste or both
- Conjunctivitis (Pink eye)
Has a medical Provider advised you to self-isolate for COVID-19 risk factors?
I have not knowingly been in in contact with any person with Covid-19.
Outdoor & In-Person COVID Accommodations
Cheat Sheet: What should I bring? A mask (or one will be provided), a travel mug for water during the session (optional).
The doors are locked at my office. I will unlock the door at the time of your appointment. In-person & outdoor sessions require a brief COVID screening (see above) at the door with a mask. Please bring your own mask or one will be provided for you. Masks must be worn for the duration of any in-person session. Masks are not required for outdoor talk therapy.
The Hamilton Centre for Personal Development (which includes my office) are following all of Ontario’s COVID-19 Health & Safety regulations for cleaning & sanitization. 15 minutes are booked inbetween sessions to clean the space.
What If I Don’t Pass the Pre-Screening Questions?
If either you or I do not pass the pre-screening questions, appointments will be online. If I do not pass the pre-screening questions, I will do my best to notify you with as much notice as possible. For those whom an online session is not possible, the appointment will be rescheduled to a later date.
How New COVID Regulations by Public Health affect your Session Confidentiality
For In-person & Outdoor sessions during the COVID pandemic, please note a limit to confidentiality may include the requirement to disclose client names, appointment dates, time of entry and departure to Public Health to aid in contact tracing should a client have a confirmed infection during the course of appointments.
This change in confidentiality limitations is for your safety so that you will become aware of any health & safety issues if they occur at my office. I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Thank you for reading all of this! I know there is a plethora of COVID Policy information out there. See you soon 🙂
