COVID-19

Update August 2021

COVID-19 remains a worry.  We are fully open! We continue to follow the direction of the Provincial Health Officer, College of Physicians and Surgeons and WorkSafeBC.

These policies remain in effect to keep patients and our staff safe:

  • Only come to Olive if you have an appointment
  • Wear a mask
  • Do not come to the clinic if you have a fever, sore throat or are in any way sick. Call us instead and we will guide you.
  • Do not come to the clinic if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19

Olive Patient Protocols

Vancouver Clinic

We are now welcoming partners to attend obstetrical ultrasounds, insemination (IUI) procedures and can be in our recovery area to greet their partners after an IVF egg retrieval. Partners will not be permitted in our procedure room for egg retrievals nor embryo transfers. Please note If you are scheduled for a monitoring ultrasound at a busy time we may not be able to let your partner accompany you as we have to limit patient numbers in compliance with Work Safe BC.

Surrey Clinic

Due to our waiting room space limitations, partners will not be able accompany patients into the clinic quite yet – we ask they still wait downstairs.

Partners are welcome to accompany patients for OB scans, IUI’s, in the pharmacy and to any in person consults or follow ups booked with Dr Tregoning. Please note If you are scheduled for a monitoring ultrasound at a busy time we may not be able to let your partner accompany you as we have to limit patient numbers in compliance with Work Safe BC.

 

Physician consults will stay as telehealth.

This is an exciting time. We are proceeding carefully with patient and staff safety at the forefront.

Unsure what to do? Call or email your team. We are very happy to be open to help you grow your family.

Sincerely,

Dr. Beth Taylor
