Although the Government of Ontario removed mandatory masking requirements for most indoor settings March 21, 2022, this does not apply to healthcare settings.
Mandatory masking requirements remain in effect for settings such as public transit, healthcare settings, long-term care homes, and congregate care settings. The Charlton Centre clinics are healthcare settings and provide treatment to patients whose immune systems are more vulnerable than the general population, and as such, anyone at a Charlton Centre clinic is required to continue masking. This masking policy will remain in place until further notice.
At Charlton Centres and at Charlton Health, all protocols that support patient safety remain in place. These policies are more stringent than seen in public due to the potential for compromised patients to shed the coronavirus longer, and to potentially be less protected from vaccination.
Patients are not permitted to attend an infusion clinic until 14 days after a positive COVID test and once symptoms have resolved.
Patients who have travelled outside of Canada must wait 7 days after their return before coming to the infusion clinic for an appointment.
These types of measures have kept our patients safe throughout the past 2+ years, and we will continue to work to provide safe care and treatment.
If you have any concerns about changes in your health, please contact your clinic in advance of your appointment to be sure you can safely receive your injection or infusion.
We value your health!
