Our Appointment & Safety Protocols
In accordance with Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Public Health, and our College governing bodies' guidelines, Motion Works Physiotherapy is open and safely providing our full range of care!
As of June 11, 2022, with the mask mandate lifted in Ottawa, the safety and comfort of our staff and clients is still of utmost importance to us, so we are approaching things with care, and gradual change. For the foreseeable future, staff and clients will be asked to wear a mask while in the clinic. For any client that enters the clinic unmasked, we will offer them a disposable medical mask for use while in clinic. We are keeping in place our sanitation/disinfection procedures, and will continue to complete active COVID-19 screening at entry until such regulations change. Our staff continues to self-screen and self-test regularly to limit the spread of illness. Our response to mask usage will likely evolve as numbers and risk is reduced and based from input from our regulatory and bodies.
We are continuing to offer virtual physiotherapy clients that are deemed appropriate, and/or wish to maximize their physical distancing.
