Covid Protocols – BC Restart Plan – Step 3 – July 1, 2021


Dear Patient,

As we are in Step 3 of BC’ Restart Plan of the pandemic, some of the regulations and recommendations have lessened.

Because we are not checking with each patient about their vaccination status, we are requiring both patient and therapist to wear a face mask during the visit at our office.  While this may be becoming more optional in various retail stores and other establishments, in BC most or all healthcare institutions or offices, especially where practitioners are in close contact with patients, are resuming their Step 2 Covid protocols, including the wearing of masks.

We no longer require patients to complete the online BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool before attending each appointment, but based on provincial and licencing board’ recommendations,  we are asking that you:

  1. Must have no sign of any communicable disease
  2. Must not be waiting for the results of a Covid test
  3. Come alone, unless you need someone for physical support or assistance, or are a minor who requires a parent or guardian to accompany you.  Otherwise, we can only accommodate one person in the waiting room at any time.  This is to minimize the number of persons breathing within the office at any one time.
  4. Please arrive no more than 5 minutes prior to your treatment.
  5. Use hand sanitizer upon your arrive to our office, and just before leaving our office.
  6. Bring and wear a clean mask, to be worn in the waiting area and in the treatment room if possible.  Both therapist and patient will wear masks and/or PPE for mutual protection.
  7. Avoid any unnecessary touching of any furniture or surfaces in the office, one’s face, and maintain the usual physical distancing in our office (2 meters) when reasonably possible.

There will be no penalties or late cancellation fees if canceling for illness or having possible COVID-19 symptoms.  Please cancel your appointment if you are sick.

Your therapist(s) will regularly monitor their own health and possible exposure to others, and also will regularly utilize the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool, notifying you if there is any cause for concern.

As well, staff/therapists will take all care to wash hands thoroughly before and after every treatment, with treatment rooms and high-touch clinic surfaces cleaned and/or sanitized frequently.

Although we take as much precaution as reasonably possible, as the nature of our treatments do not allow for physical distancing, please be aware that it is impossible to eliminate all risk related to the state of general pandemic.  Please consider your own category or tolerance of risk in regards to going out or booking any appointments with us.

Please feel free to respond with any questions or concerns.
