Important Health Notices on COVID-19

The Ministry of Health relies on the AOM to disseminate ministry information to all AOM members during a health emergency such as an outbreak or pandemic. The AOM monitors outbreaks and alerts midwives as soon as possible with the relevant available information to assist in the next phase of planning and implementation for a specific outbreak:

Information for clients

Midwives continue to provide uninterrupted service to their clients but the way care is delivered may differ as more virtual visits are being conducted. Midwives are screening their clients for symptoms of COVID-19 and ordering testing for COVID-19 on their behalf when clinically indicated. However, midwives are NOT ordering testing for COVID-19 for the general public.

If you are a midwifery client with any symptoms of COVID-19 (PDF, 88 KB), or if you are self-isolating for any reason, please do not present yourself at clinic. Instead, call ahead and make alternate arrangements with your midwife. If you have severe breathing difficulties (or any other emergency), please call 9-1-1.
