We have implemented formal COVID-19 screening of our OTs, staff and clients. We have increased frequency of disinfecting the clinic, hand-washing and will adhere to social distancing during any in-person appointments. Use of facial coverings aligned with WorkSafeBC and COTBC guidelines.
To adhere to OT professional guidelines, we will be working with clients and fee payers to determine if the requested OT service is essential prior to proceeding with any in-person meetings. If deemed non-essential, the OT session will be conducted as a TELEHEALTH session via secured video-conferencing or postponed, depending on the individual’s need. For more information on our telehealth services, please see the rehab services tab.
