Central Family Health team clients will have to wear masks to appointments


If you’re heading to the doctors when Ontario starts allowing offices to open again, you’ll need to wear a mask.

Officials from the Central Lambton Family Health Team, in a social media post, says the province’s new updated guidelines for primary care settings recommends clinics encourage patients to wear their own mask – when possible – to office appointments.

It offers the patient protection without further depleting personal protective equipment, according to the statement.

It’s asking patients to wear a mask – which can be homemade – to appointments. Officials say if you don’t have a mask, one will be provided to you.
