When COVID-19 restrictions are in effect, we use a combination of some or all of the following precautions.
You must wear a mask at all times when you are in Spot Check Clinic.
If you have a medical exemption and don't wear a mask, you are still at risk of acquiring or transmitting COVID, een if you are vaccinated. Please defer your skin check until after COVID-19 restrictions have lifted.

If your appointment is more than 10 minutes away, we ask that you wait outside.
Please sanitise your hands on entry.
