Amid pandemic, call before visiting walk-in clinics in Kamloops

These changes have come following the recommendation from Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry for health professionals to provide care to patients through telephone or video consultations whenever possible

People heading to a local walk-in clinic should call first — or at least check websites — as clinics are taking steps to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 by changing their processes.

The Kamloops Urgent Care Clinic at Columbia Street and McGill Road (behind Superstore) is temporarily taking appointments only by phone, at 250-371-4905.

Anybody with COVID-19 symptoms should call the clinic or 811 and go online and use the self-assessment tool, at https://covid19.thrive.health.

The Multi-Disciplinary Health Care Centre in Kinetic Energy, downtown in Lansdowne Village, is also taking appointments by phone. Staff will follow up with a telephone consultation before deciding if a patient needs to visit the clinic in person.

The clinic can be reached by phone at 250-828-6637 or by email at info@kamloopskineticenergy.com
