Registered Audiologists (RAUDs), Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioners (RHIPs), and Registered Speech-Language Pathologists (RSLPs) are advised to read two important letters from BC’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, providing guidance to health care workers on COVID-19 (coronavirus).
The letters address:
- Self-isolation advice for health care workers, including those who have travelled outside of Canada.
- How patients, physicians, health care workers, and the public can make inquiries if they have questions about COVID-19.
- Cleaning practices in offices.
Please read both letters from Dr. Henry:
