COVID-19 Safety Measures for Patients

With COVID-19 potentially moving from the pandemic to the endemic stage, the Ontario Government has lifted province wide mask mandates, in most public settings, effective March 21, 2022.

However, mask mandates remain in effect for health care settings until April 27, 2022, when all remaining mask mandates are set to expire.

To ensure the continued well-being of our patients, our clinical teams and members of the broader community, we are continuing to operate with various enhanced safety protocols in place, including:

  • Added plexiglass shields at reception desks (where possible)
  • Removal of all non-essential displays or reception/waiting area content
  • Sanitizing all reception and common areas
  • Sanitizing all treatment rooms & equipment between each patient visit
  • Having all staff wear a level 2 surgical mask & wash their hands regularly
  • Having all practitioners wear gloves & a KN95 or level 2 surgical mask during treatment
  • Requiring patients to wear a mask at all times while in the clinic
  • Ensuring hand sanitizer is readily available for all patients

WHAT WE CAN DO INDIVIDUALLY:

While it appears that the worst may be behind us, there are things that we can and should do to keep ourselves as healthy as possible.

Continue Practicing Good Hygiene:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water
  • Cough or sneeze into your sleeve, not your hands
  • Keep hands away from your face (especially your eyes, nose and mouth)

 

Continue Boosting Your Immune System:

  • Incorporate nutrient-dense foods into your diet, including vegetables, beans and nuts
  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep per night
  • Commit to at least 20 minutes of low-to-moderate intensity exercise per day

RECEIVING CARE VIRTUALLY:

For those patients who are apprehensive about in-person care, our clinics offer a safe, secure and effective virtual care option. To learn more about continuing care though our virtual care program, please visit our Virtual Care program page.

 

As always, and on behalf of all of us at Physiomed, we are here for you!

Sincerely,
