Please note an important change to our Mask Policy at Happy Valley FHT. Due to the high transmissibility of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, we are no longer accepting the use of fabric masks in the clinic. Where possible, please wear a medical style of mask including a procedure/surgical mask or non-fit-tested respirator (N95, KN95) to your booked appointments. If you do not have access to this type of face covering, please wear what you have. 

A mask MUST be worn while in the clinic, please try to remember to have one on BEFORE entering the building.
Active screening for COVID-19 still remains.
Please make sure you check your email (Ocean by CognisantMD) the day before your scheduled appointment. Complete the screening questions and confirm your appointment.
If you screen 'negative', please proceed into the clinic wearing a mask and check in with Reception.
If you screen 'positive', remain in your car and call into the clinic and speak with reception for directions.
DO NOT enter the clinic unless you have received a call to enter.
