Hong Fook is committed to continue to take very cautious steps to protect the health and safety of our staff and clients while preparing to resume Hong Fook’s stage 2 re- opening. We attend to the urgent and complex needs of the most vulnerable clients to ensure their health and well-being.

- In-person appointments will initially be limited. Client’s appointments may continue to be virtual (by phone or video) or in person, depending on the clinical staff and their clients’ circumstance

What is expected for the client’s in-person appointment?
- Clients will be called 24-48 hours in advance of their appointment to answer our COVID-19 pre-screening questions
- We ask that all clients wear a face covering or mask that covers their nose and mouth when they enter in the office and the duration of their appointment time. If they don’t have one, our front desk reception will give them one.
- Upon entering, the clients have to use the hand sanitizer immediately and sign in
- Our staff (front desk) will do a review of the COVID-19 Questionnaire (translated version will be available). Our aim is to have the client seen with little or no waiting time, to comply with social distancing
