Effective June 1st 2020, we are resuming the option of in-clinic, non-urgent services for essential sexual and reproductive health care. With safety measures in place, most of our clinics can see patients for birth control, STI testing and treatment, pregnancy testing and options, and Pap testing. Clinical services will be based on the availability of clinical staff, and the ability to meet the requirements for social distancing. If the specific service you are seeking is not listed here, please call the Fernie Options for Sexual Health Clinic at 250-423-8274 or call Sex Sense at 1-800-739-7367 toll-free to confirm that this clinic is able to offer the service you require.
Thank you for your patience and for supporting our staff in keeping you and themselves safe. We are doing all we can to see as many patients as possible, safely. We will still offer care via telephone assessment as a first choice for decreasing asymptomatic COVID transmission risk.
