Illness Policy during COVID-19
While virtual visits are the safest option in this time of social distancing, I will still do home visits when needed by following the British Columbia’s/Canada’s Health’s COVID-19 Guidance for In-Home Caregivers.
I do not do home visits if I have a fever, new respiratory symptoms like a new cough or sore throat, if I have had known exposure to someone with COVID-19 or other communicable illnesses, or if I have been diagnosed with COVID-19. It is important to point out that COVID-19 has a 14 day incubation period, which means that people who are not showing symptoms can still spread the disease.
During home visits I will do my best to maintain social distancing, however a lot of breastfeeding things do require me to be close enough to see what’s happening. I will wear a MASK during the entire visit, as well as washing/sanitizing my hands and my equipment. I do have a respiratory condition (just like asthma) that may make me cough at times, but I can assure you this is not associated with COVID-19.
By agreeing to my illness policy you are confirming that no-one in your household:
- Has a fever (Higher than 100.3 degrees) or new respiratory symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat
- Has any flu-like symptoms
- Has travelled to a COVID-19-affected area (outside of U.S.) in the past 14 days
- Has had contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days
- Has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or told by a healthcare provider that they may or do have COVID-19
I will also contact you before the visit to double check that we are all still healthy and ready to meet! We can always switch from a home visit to a virtual visit (as long as I have at least 4 hours notice before our appointment- otherwise we can reschedule to an virtual visit at a different time). I will refund any deposit paid if we cancel due to illness.

I understand that these photos or videos are not to be sold, shared or released on the internet. The lactation consultant agrees to be photographed or videoed for my own teaching purposes only.
