Yellowknife Medical Appointment Info
Walk-in type appointments in Yellowknife will be converted to same-day appointments, we are not reducing the number of appointments available. We ask that individuals call to secure appointments. If you present at the clinic you will be given a time for your appointment and asked to leave the premises until your appointment to maintain social distancing and reduce opportunities for potential spread. Our aim is to reduce congregation of individuals at clinic sites.

• Yellowknife residents with flu like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) must call public health at 867-767-9120 for appointments. A quick screening questionnaire will help determine if you should present to Primary Care, Stanton ER, or the off-site COVID-19 screening clinic.

• Residents are asked to call public health to arrange appointments, and there will be no walk-in COVID related appointments. To avoid the risk of spread we have strict infection prevention and control processes in place and want to limit contact with potential cases, we will be directing individuals who need COVID-19 screening to a specific site for this service.

• The Yellowknife Eye Clinic will be eliminating walk-in type appointments and deferring non-urgent care and services. If you have an urgent issue you can still secure an appointment by phoning the eye clinic at 867-873-3577.


ADVICE CHANGE
The Office of the Chief Public Health Officer now advises residents use coverings when in public places. While face coverings cannot prevent all contact with virus-containing droplets, they have been found to be effective in limiting the ability of these droplets to spread further from someone who may not be aware they have the virus. There are many examples on the internet of how to make your own face covering.

This does NOT replace the need for everyone to
• keep distance of at least two metres apart
• stay home if you’re feeling even a little bit sick
• avoid touching your face
• wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds using soap and water or use alcohol based sanitizer when putting on the mask and taking it off
• clean & disinfect contaminated high touch surfaces
• cover your mouth in your elbow if you cough or sneeze if not wearing a facial covering
