Our COVID-19 Response
In these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, despite the many necessary restrictions to everyday life, our priority is to remain available for the women, men and families who need our services.
At Gianna Care, our priority is the safety and well being of our clients. During the COVID-19 crisis, we are making some changes to our centres for the next few weeks to help keep you safe and healthy.
For our centres to remain open, here are a few notable adjustments we’ve made:
- We are pre-screening clients by phone and in person by asking a series of questions related to COVID-19. Clients, or any guests with them who are exhibiting symptoms, are being referred to appropriate outside healthcare professionals and asked to reschedule their appointment with us.
- Our centres only allow 1 guest at a time.
- We are also screening staff each day for symptoms and are sending any who present with fever home. We have adjusted our staff meeting times and locations to allow for social distancing of the staff. We are encouraging those who are able to work from home to do so. We are also increasing the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting.
- To reduce risk to our pregnancy centre staff, we are focusing our efforts on clients with the most urgent needs. Our ultrasound appointments are being limited for the next several weeks. Clients with material needs are being allowed to pick up prepackaged bags by appointment. We are also offering additional items such as baby food and wipes for those in need.
We appreciate your cooperation during this time as we get things up and running.
