COVID-19 Update

To our valued patients,

Like the rest of country, we have been closely monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 virus and the advice of Canada’s public health authorities. As a clinic, we have implemented changes to focus on the health and safety of our therapists, administration, and patients.

However, as the virus continues to spread in communities across our country, and our government takes a firmer stance on non-essential trips out of the home, we are forced to consider more extreme measures aimed at reducing the spread of the virus and the demand on our health care system. As physiotherapists and massage therapists, we work in very close contact with our patients, and we see many patients each day. In these types of settings, the potential risk of transmission is elevated, and we need to do our part limiting the spread of this virus and protecting vulnerable populations in our community.

For that reason, we are writing to inform you that we have made the very difficult decision, following recommendations from the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, to close our clinics effective Wednesday March 18th. We will be responding to e-mails to help reschedule appointments and ensure your immediate questions are answered until we can see you again. As of right now, we anticipate remaining closed until Monday March 30th, at which time we will re-evaluate based on current guidelines set forth by the provincial and federal governments, and our physiotherapy and massage therapy associations.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this difficult time, and hope to have your continued support and loyalty as we navigate the upcoming weeks.

COVID 19 NOTICE

Update: March 11, 2022

Please note: The Provincial Government has removed the mask mandate for public spaces in BC.  Inside our clinic, we are requiring masks to be worn in common areas.  This is because a sizeable portion of our patients are elderly, immunocompromised, or in the highest risk levels.  Part of our responsibility as healthcare professionals is ensuring all patients have access to care – therefore we have a responsibility to ensure our environment is safe for everybody.  However, once you are inside a treatment room, masks can be taken off with mutual consent between a patient (yourself), and therapist.  This means if you want your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If both you and your therapist would like to remove your masks, you may.  We think this is a compromise which can accommodate nearly everybody.

Just a reminder, despite COVID-19 cases declining in BC, there is still community transmission.  This means there is at least some risk of COVID-19 transmission at our clinic.

NEW: We have installed HEPA air purifiers inside each of our treatment rooms to further try to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you for your continued support.  We hope everyone stays healthy.
