The World Health Organization has declared covid-19 a pandemic. Dr. Theresa Tam, the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada has urged everyone to help Flatten the Curve. This means slow the inevitable spread of this virus. Health Canada‘s Covid-19 site is an excellent resource for current and accurate information. Please don’t trust unaccredited sources of information to guide decisions that could impact the health of your family and community.
The St. John’s Back Pain Clinic is committed to supporting this process with the following measures.
- (as usual) Handwashing between every patient encounter
- Frequent cleaning of all treatment equipment, door handles, payment terminals and counters
- removal of magazines and shared items from the waiting room
- We invite all patients to use our washroom to wash their hands before/after their visit
If you have recently travelled (within Canada or abroad) and/or feel flu like symptoms prior to your appointment please contact us to reschedule.
We will do our best to make this process as easy as possible for you. There will be no penalty for cancelling or rescheduling your appointment for this reason. Please refer to Health Canada for more information and contact your family doctor or call 811 for more direction if you have symptoms.
