Client’s requiring lab or x-ray services on other days will need to travel to Turtleford with a physician requisition to access services. Turtleford Lab will remain open Monday-Friday 8:30-16:00.
Effective March 23, the Saskatchewan Health Authority put into place restrictions and cancellations on non-urgent services on all health programs due to the COVID-19 Worldwide Pandemic.
At this time, Turtleford, Edam, St. Walburg and Glaslyn medical clinics are providing phone call visits with our providers when possible. Only urgent in person appointments will be available at the physicians discretion.
Screening will take place when booking appointments to keep clinic staff safe and healthy and to slow the spread of COVID-19. If patients are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to risk factors, please call 811 or use the self assessment tool available on the Government of Saskatchewan Website (Saskatchewan.ca/covid19). General inquires in relation to COVID-19 can be directed to COVID19@health.gov.sk.ca. *For severe symptoms, please call ahead to the emergency department to allow nursing staff to properly prepare* As the situation changes, further recommendations and reductions to services will be required.
We are asking for patients understanding and cooperation in these uncertain times. It is our continued effort to provide the best care possible to our patients and offer support and direction as needed.
How to Protect Yourself (Source: Saskatchewan.ca/covid19) Currently, there is no approved vaccine that protects people against coronaviruses. As a respiratory illness, the best method to protect yourself against COVID-19 is to practise everyday preventive actions, including:
Practise proper cough and sneezing etiquette (into the bend of your elbow);
Wash your hands often with soap and water; if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands;
Maintain safe food practices; and
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid unnecessary travel to affected areas.
Avoid large crowds and practice social distancing (do not shake hands, hug or kiss).
There is no evidence that surgical masks protect persons who are not sick. The World Health Organization does not recommend the use of any masks if you do not have a travel history and respiratory symptoms. If you have respiratory symptoms such as cough or difficulty breathing and a relevant travel history you should wear a surgical/procedure mask when seeking medical care at a health facility. If you are going to a health care facility for treatment of your respiratory illness and do not have a mask, ask for one at the admission desk and one will be provided to you.
