Protocols during Covid-19

We are seeing patients in person.  It is safe to come to the clinic and we encourage you to do so to ensure you get the right care. Phone/virtual appointments are available where appropriate or preferred.

Our health care facilities will continue to require masks as well as do active screening for Covid-19 symptoms. While the mask mandate is being lifted, the wearing of masks is still encouraged in group settings to reduce risk of additional spread and additional strain on our hospital/medical system. Thank you for your cooperation!

You should assume you have Covid-19, if you have ONE of the following symptoms:

  • Cough,
  • Shortness of Breath,
  • Fever,
  • Loss of Taste/Smell

OR if you have TWO of the following:

  • Extreme Tiredness,
  • Runny Nose,
  • Sore Throat,
  • Muscle Aches/Joint Pain,
  • Nausea/Vomiting/Diarrhea,
  • Headache

Please note that there is now access to oral treatments for Covid-19 if you are in a high risk group (immunocompromised, unvaccinated, age over 70, multiple other health issues, for example). If you think you may qualify, please contact your family physician right away as treatment needs to be started within 5 days of having symptoms.

  • If you are symptomatic, you need to assume you have Covid-19. You should self-isolate for 5 days (10 days if over 12 and have not received 2 doses of vaccine, or if immunocompromised) AND until you have had no fever for 24 hours, and have been feeling better for 24 hours. Testing is not required but rapid tests are available at various pharmacies and grocery stores.
  • If you are in a high-risk group (immunocompromised, unvaccinated, age over 70, and/or multiple other health issues, for example), you may qualify for oral Paxlovid treatment. Please contact your family physician right away as treatment needs to be started within 5 days of having symptoms.
  • Regarding the Rapid Antigen Tests: It has been found they these tests are not as accurate for the Omicron strain, and as many as 40% of cases may be missed. This can be improved by doing a combined oral-nasal sample. Instructions on how to do that is located here.
  • If you are a close contact (been around someone who is/has become symptomatic or positive for Covid), then the following applies:
    • If you live with the patient, you need to self-isolate for as long as they need to isolate UNLESS:
      • you are over 18 and have received 3 doses of Covid-19 vaccine, OR
      • you are under 18 and have received 2 doses of Covid-19 vaccine, OR
      • you have had a proven case of Covid-19 in the last 90 days
    • If you do not live with the patient, then you need to self-monitor for symptoms for the next 10 days, and only isolate and test if you become symptomatic.

Regarding Covid-19 Vaccination:

With the new variants, we are encouraging everyone to get their next doses when you are eligible! (and it’s still not too late to get your first dose if you haven’t been vaccinated yet)

If you are wondering about the difference between the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccine, consider them as essentially identical – like 2 different brands of bottled water! Here is a good infographic  on the subject.

If you need to get a copy of your vaccination receipt, you can get this from the provincial Covid-19 Vaccination site. Do not use this to book appointments for vaccines however, as London is using a different site. 

If you received your Covid vaccination outside of Ontario, you may register your previous vaccination with Public Health here by following these instructions.

If you have any questions around the vaccination – how it works, safety, risks, etc. – please have a conversation with your doctor to make sure you are getting accurate information. Some general information on the Covid-19 vaccines is available here.

About Us

The Story of Our Clinic

The Core Family Health Centre is the creation of a husband and wife team: Vineet Nair, MD, CCFP and Andrea Nair, MA,CCC. It houses a group of family physicians, as well as other allied health practitioners which include psychotherapists, physiotherapists, and a pharmacy.

They started this Centre because they wanted to create an innovative and efficient clinic in which to provide high quality care. Vineet and Andrea also wanted to develop a space which was inviting, welcoming, and comfortable – both for the patients and the providers. They are very excited for the team of people that have joined the Centre and feel thankful for everyone’s incredible skills and talents.

Vineet and Andrea hope this Centre is a place where people will feel cared for, safe, helped, and respected as they try to live the healthiest life they can enjoy.
