What measures is Canadian Hearing Services taking to prevent transmission of the virus?
Enhanced screening of clients is being done prior to appointments. That, along with inquiring about recent travel history, will help us to quickly identify clients who have signs and symptoms of infection.
Our clinical team is in close contact with Public Health Ontario and other agencies to help guide decision-making and receive updates on the virus.
