What has changed due to COVID-19?Georgian College Chevron

In an effort to keep clients, students and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made a number of changes in our Health and Wellness Clinics to meet the most strict regulatory and Public Health policies and recommendations. These include:

  • Entry is only at the front doors facing Duckworth St.
  • You will be screened before you can enter and asked the most up to date screening questions available from Public Health.
    • The fastest way for you to go through this process is to use the mobile device app that you can find for download here: [email protected].
    • Clients who do not pass the screening will need to reschedule their appointment by phone.
    • Effective Sept. 7, 2021 clients, caregivers and substitute decision makers coming to clinics subject to regulatory college guidelines will need to go through a separated screening station for clinic clients as they will not be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. This includes the following clinics:
      • Massage Clinic
      • Acupuncture Clinic
      • Oral Health Clinic
      • Harmonize for Speech, Hearing and Language Clinic
      • Occupational Therapy Paediatric Clinic
      • Georgian College Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic
    • Clients coming to the spa will need to follow both the Georgian College screening and mandatory COVID-19 vaccination procedure (does not apply to children under 12).
  • Mandatory college-provided medical masks will be provided upon entry by a campus ambassador at the screening station.
  • Questions about medical accommodations – for both mask wearing and COVID-19 vaccination – may be directed to [email protected].
    • Mask exemptions will only apply in the common areas (e.g. the foyer).
    • All clients will be subject to specific clinic policies.
    • In many clinics, mask exemptions are not possible due to requirements dictated by the provincial regulatory body.
  • We ask that you bring your own pen to complete any forms at the clinics.
  • Do not bring non-essential items.
  • We will have only a few chairs for seating in the foyer and there will be no space for other guests to wait. If you require special accommodation regarding seating, please let us know.
  • Only the person with the appointment will be allowed into the clinic as well as up to one caregiver, substitute decision maker or legal guardian (this must be arranged ahead of time).
  • Washrooms will have limits on how many people can be in them at once.
  • Some clinics will look very different with plexiglass barriers, plastic room enclosures, etc. in order to practice as safely as possible.
  • In most cases, cash will no longer be accepted as a form of payment.

What is my role as a client?Georgian College Chevron

As a client, we ask that you support our clinic philosophy:

Students need time to develop their clinical skills. Missed appointments and last-minute cancellations affect the success of students who are trying to meet their learning requirements. Therefore, we ask that you make the commitment of time and patience.

For more information, review our Client Code of Conduct.

Can I submit an insurance claim?Georgian College Chevron

As our students are not yet licensed health-care professionals, many of our clients have been unsuccessful in having their claims reimbursed. We suggest that you contact your insurance provider before booking an appointment to determine your eligibility.

An exceptions to this rule is the Harmonize for Speech, Hearing and Language Clinic. Denturism services do qualify for Ontario Works Claims in some regions including Simcoe County. Please ask for further information when booking an appointment.

Am I allowed to bring food and drinks inside the clinic?Georgian College Chevron

In accordance with Health and Safety, food and drinks are not permitted inside the clinics.

What is your policy on electronic devices in the clinic?Georgian College Chevron

In accordance with our privacy regulations and to ensure client confidentiality, the use of cell phones or any type of electronic or recording devices is strictly prohibited inside the clinic space. You are asked to turn off and store all electronic devices while inside the clinic. Stored electronics should be turned off or set on mute in consideration of others.

What are my payment options?Georgian College Chevron

We accept the following payment methods:

  • Debit
  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Georgian OneCard – Available in some clinics

Please note, cash will no longer be accepted due to the COVID-19 pandemic

What is the cancellation policy?Georgian College Chevron

During to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to suspend our cancellation policy. We ask that out of respect for student learning, you make every effort to attend your appointment unless you are ill. When clients do not come to appointments, the result is that our students do not have the ability to practise their skills and show that they have met their learning outcomes. This puts their ability to be successful in their program at risk.

The Oral Health Clinic policy states that a minimum of 24-hour notice for appointment cancellations is required. Two or more missed appointments or short notice cancellations may result in dismissal from the clinic. We do completely understand and support if you need to miss your appointment due to illness.

Am I allowed to smoke on Georgian College property?Georgian College Chevron

Effective May 6, 2019, there will be no smoking on Georgian property. Find out more about a smoke-free Georgian College.
