COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Our Preventative Measures
To all our patients and community of Tonume Integrated Health:
We are writing to you today to provide some further information regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and what we, at Tonume Integrated Health, are doing in response to create a more hygienic experience.
As a valued patient at Tonume, your health and wellness has always been our number one concern. Since the COVID-19 initial outbreak we looked to our Provincial Healthcare Colleges and our local Health Agencies to ensure that we are aware of, and aligned with safety/sanitization procedures to help minimize the risks of an outbreak within our community.
We already do our best to maintain our new facilities by way of rigorous cleaning/sanitization schedules. We have also added additional sanitization procedures
to provide an even greater level of protection for all of us.
These procedures take place in between each treatment as well as at the end of each day.
Our newly expanded facility already has a state of the art filtration system, but we have also added a Medical Grade HEPA Air Filter capable of achieving a 99.97% viral and bacterial removal efficiency, as an additional method in our patient waiting/reception area.
We are monitoring any and all updates, recommendations and warnings that may be issued by the Government of BC and Government of Canada. The Public Health Agency has assessed the public health risk to Canadians as low and recommends assessing the risk from a specific situation or event on a case-by-case basis.
Currently the Government of BC also identifies the risk to BC residents as low.
Links are provided below to the respective government update pages.
***Most importantly, if you aren’t feeling well, and are displaying symptoms of the COVID-19 virus. Please call us to cancel/reschedule your appointment and call your doctor right away to find out what to do next.***
We value your health and wellness, and will continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and will do our very best to provide you with facilities that are sanitized to the highest of standards.
We hope that this gives you the confidence to continue to see Tonume Integrated Health as your source for continued health care going forward.
If you have any questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
