Frequently asked questions related to COVID-19 and UP
For the safety of all patients, the clinic is divided into a 2-in-1 emergency centre with separate zones, a Rainbow (hot) zone for kids with fevers, and a Heart (cold) zone for kids with injuries.
When you arrive at the building’s entrance, you will be expected to clean your hands and keep physical distanced from one another. Our staff will greet you, provide you and your child a procedural mask, and ask a few questions about your child’s symptoms. If symptoms consistent with COVID-19, the staff will direct you to the designated rainbow elevator, that is disinfected pre and post rides. If symptoms unrelated, like an injured arm, you will be directed to the frequently cleaned HEART elevator.
Upon your arrival on the 4th floor, you will be greeted by an UP agent to help with way-finding into the appropriate Rainbow or Heart zone. Afterwards, your child will be evaluated in sequence by our team of specialized nurses and doctors – each of whom aim to deliver quality care with a WOW!
