Additional COVID-19 Safety Measures

With the seasons steadily changing to autumn, QOMC is keenly aware the cold and flu season is approaching fast.
We are committed to setting the bar high for quality patient care and COVID-19 safety. With that in mind we've implemented additional health and safety measures that became effective at the beginning of September, 2020.
We've installed free standing plastic safety barriers around our reception desk. This additional barrier, combined with our mandatory face mask rule for all patients, staff, and clinicians, will act as insurance against the transmission of germs and/or virus molecules between patients and staff.
We're conducting mandatory temperature checks on all incoming patients using a hands-free forehead thermometer. If a patient is found to be running a significant temperature, we ask that patient to reschedule once their temperature returns to normal. Additionally, staff members are conducting temperature checks on themselves as needed to ensure no one is ill while interacting with our community.
We are encouraging our community and staff to receive flu vaccinations for the 2020-2021 flu season. It IS possible to contract COVID-19 AND the seasonal flu at the same time. While the seasonal flu vaccine does NOT prevent COVID-19 it will give your body immunity against a preventable flu virus for your overall health and wellness.
These steps are on top of the precautions we are already taking to keep our community safe. To review, these include:
QOMC looks forward to continuing to support our patients and community as we move into the autumn and winter seasons. Please reach out to us if you have questions or concerns about the upcoming cold and flu season or have questions about our COVID-19 prevention measures. See you soon!
