Covid 19 Update – Support People and Masks

Written on .

Dear Clients of Genesis Midwives,

For your safety and ours, Genesis Midwives has new Covid-19 protocols.

We have a change in policy. Rather than calling we ask that you complete two self screenings (at the front door and front desk) and receive a fresh mask at reception.
Should you be showing any signs or symptoms please call to reschedule your appointment.
In an effort to limit exposure, masks are still required during your time in clinic. Support people are now welcome. Only one asymptomatic person may accompany you. They must also wear a mask and fill out the COVID questionnaire.
We thank you for your patience. Please continue to check this space for updates and any further changes.
