WHERE YOUR JOURNEY TO HEALTH AND WELLNESS BEGINS
It is our top priority that we keep patients, staff and the community safe during this time and that we follow the guidelines set out by the Public Health Officer (PHO), the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), the College of Chiropractors of BC (CCBC), and WorkSafeBC (WSBC). Please read the following Safety Protocols on our menu. Please take the BC COVID-19 self-assessment at https://bc.thrive.health/ to see if you are safe to come into the clinic.
It is mandatory that patients and staff are wearing medical masks in the clinic. If you forget to bring yours in we do have medical masks available at the front-desk for a fee.
If you have had any symptoms related to cold, flu, or COVID-19, been in contact with anyone that is sick or you suspect to be sick, and/or been outside of Canada in the last 14 days, please quarantine yourself for a minimum of 14 days. If you do have symptoms related to COVID-19 and they progress, please contact your medical doctor/nurse practitioner or 8-1-1. If the staff or chiropractor suspect that you do have these symptoms, you will be respectfully asked to leave the clinic and re-book for another time.
