July 3, 2021, Maintaining A Safe and Healthy Summer

We have now received direction from Alberta Health and the CMOH regarding the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions with regulated healthcare providers and their clinics. This is our update so that everyone knows to what to expect when visiting our clinic.

We will continue with all our precautionary practices and protocols, including:

· Screening all guests and staff upon arrival (still mandatory by AHS)

· Sanitizing all surfaces and equipment between appointments

· All staff, including practitioners, nursing team and receptionists, will continue to wear masks for the time being. Some of them will also

continue to wear protective eyewear.

· We continue to encourage all our patients to wear masks during their in-clinic appointments especially when close to others (ie: during appointments, or when in our IV room, or waiting room).

Just to re-confirm, masks are no longer officially required while in the clinic, but because many of our patients are immune-compromised, masks are highly recommended, as they are in most other medical, naturopathic, physio, chiro and alternative care clinics!!

We are extremely proud of our safety record, having had no COVID-19 transmission at the clinic, and we intend to keep it that way.

The health and safety of our Patients and our Team are of the upmost priority!!
