Providing Patient Care in a Pandemic

Please consult this page and CASLPO’s COVID-19 Information Page regularly for the latest information and for potential revisions to the Pandemic Practice Advice documents.

Always weigh the risk of transmitting the COVID-19 virus with seeing patients in-person.  If the patient care is non-essential, consider providing services virtually or postponing the service.  If you are seeing the patient in-person because their needs are essential or urgent, please follow the advice in these Pandemic Practice Advice documents.
