As you may or may not know China has been experiencing an outbreak of the Coronavirus that has lead to at least 25 people dead and more than 800 confirmed infected. There are also several people being monitored in Canada for the infection. Because of the global impact of this virus we urge patients to take the necessary precautions and if they are presenting with any symptoms. This flu-like illness can be contracted through human-to-human transmission with symptoms including cough, sore throat, runny nose, high fevers, and difficulty breathing. If you know of anyone that has recently travelled to China, more specifically Wuhan, we stress the importance of maintaining good hygiene and if you present symptoms quickly seeking help.
At this time, we will not be seeing patients with flu-like symptoms in our office. If you are an established patient and would like to receive herbs, please make an appointment for a phone call herb consultation and we can help.
We thank you for your understanding at this time and will keep you updated if we make any changes.
