COVID-19

Update December 4, 2020

COVID-19 remains a worry for us. Sadly, the number of cases continues to climb here in BC and across Canada.

At Olive we are open and plan to remain open and performing all diagnostics and treatments during the pandemic.  IVFs, hysteroscopy, ultrasound, embryo transfers and IUIs are being done.  We will have a partial closure (as usual) from December 24th to January 3rd. During this time no IUIs, hysteroscopies or embryo transfers will be performed.  This is not related to COVID, but part of our annual maintenance clinic closure. 

Physician consults will stay as telehealth for now, as we minimize close contact.

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

  • Only come to Olive if you have an appointment. No drop-ins!
  • Come alone to your appointment - NO PARTNERS OR CHILDREN!
  • 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 can guide you.
  • Do not come to the clinic if you have been exposed to someone with COVID
  • Do not come to the clinic if you have been outside of Canada in the past 14 days

These policies will stay in place for the forseeable future so we can stay open and able to help. 

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

Sincerely,

Dr. Beth Taylor
