ACROSS Covid 19 Response

In keeping with the Ministry of Health’s advice regarding keeping physical distance and hygiene during this Level 2 of the Covid 19 pandemic, everyone who comes into the office will be asked about their health and to sanitize their hands before entering. Please do not be offended as we ask the same questions of everyone before allowing access to keep you and our staff healthy.

If or when we move to Level 3 the office will be closed and we will work remotely. This means we will be contactable by phone for queries and virtual appointments. Our 0800ACROSS (227677) number will continue to be answered and messages passed along to the appropriate person who will return your call.
