Effective August 10th, 2021 our chief medical officer has lifted the requirement to wear a mask while indoors. Given the size of our clinic and the nature of our treatments we have decided that our practitioners will continue to wear a mask. We ask that all clients and patients continue to wear a mask when entering our clinic. This decision was made with safety as our main concern and we appreciate your support. As always we will have masks available if you have forgotten yours.
The St. John’s Back Pain Clinic will be re-opening as soon as the Avalon peninsula moves to Level 4. This is currently expected to happen on March 13, 2021. We have begun contacting patients and clients to schedule appointment for March 15th and onwards. Of course you are welcome to request an appointment as well.
Our clinic will continue the recommended safety measures. Please remember that masks are required at all times in our clinic, that anyone visiting our clinic must complete a prescreening survey and to arrive exactly on time for your appointments, not early. Patients and clients can read more detail on our safety changes for June 2020 and onwards.
This was not as long as our first lockdown but we are just as excited to see all of you again!
The St. John’s Back Pain Clinic will be re-opening as soon as Newfoundland & Labrador moves to Level 3. This is currently expected to happen on June 8th, 2020. We will begin contacting patients on June 1st to schedule appointment for June 8th and onwards. Of course you are welcome to request an appointment as well.
Our clinic operations have been adjusted to increase safety. We have added time between appointments to allow proper cleaning of our treatments rooms and common spaces. Patients and clients can read more detail on our safety changes for June 2020 and onwards.
Most importantly we are looking forward resuming our work helping people overcome injuries and get back to doing the things they love.
With the ongoing closure of most businesses and facilities in the province the St. John’s Back Pain Clinic will remain closed until we are given clearance to re-open. Our first priority once we re-open will be to get in touch with all of our patients and clients to help them resume treatment as soon as possible.
It is very challenging as a practitioner to be unable to provide care for our valued patients and clients. We trust that the approach put in place by our healthcare leaders is absolutely necessary and in the best interest of the people of our province and country. Please do everything you can to follow their guidance. Stay home except for essentials like medication and food, keep 2 meters social distance, avoid public gatherings of any size, wash your hands often and stick to national and provincial health authorities for accurate information.
Hang in there and stay safe from Aleasha, Carmela, Erin, Judy and Ken.
