  • muscle or body aches
  • temperature equal to or more than 38°C/100.4°F

If you are between day 2-4 of any of these symptoms, please call the office to have an at-home Rapid Antigen test dropped off to you. If you feel you cannot do the test yourself, please let us know and we can assist you.

Please stay home as much as possible and stay safe everyone.
