If you have COVID-19, you can, in most cases, practise self-care at home. See the Self-Care Guide - COVID-19 page for more information.
Even during the pandemic, you can consult a health or social services professional if you feel the need or if you or a family member has a health problem or a psychosocial problem.
If you or a family member has a health problem that requires regular follow-up with a health or social services processional, it is important to continue these follow-ups.
Examples of health problems:
- a chronic disease (e.g., diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, degenerative disease, etc.);
- a mental health condition (e.g., depression, anxiety disorder, etc.);
- or any other disease, condition or situation that requires regular follow-up with a health or social services professional.
During a pandemic, if your situation is stable, your appointment might be postponed.
All primary care medical clinics must admit patients whether or not they have symptoms similar to COVID-19.
You do not need to be tested to get a consultation.
