COVID Protocols

The Ontario Government announced a province-wide stay-at-home order beginning Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 12:01 am. Regulated health professionals, including chiropractors and physiotherapists, are listed as businesses that may remain open under the stay-at-home order, and may continue to operate in accordance with current guidance around COVID-19. There is no change to the scope of care that chiropractors and physiotherapists are permitted to provide resulting from the Government’s announcement.
