Covid Procedures

COVID Safety Measures

Across Canada we have taken extraordinary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. For our clinic, that meant closing our general “in person” physio and massage and offering Telerehab for physiotherapy during closure and as we move forward.

Most of our physician tenants closed their offices to all but Telemedicine.

Safety Guidelines
