Additional infection prevention measures have been put in place in the acupuncture clinic to limit the propagation of Covid-19, in compliance with the requirements of the Professional Order of Acupuncturists of Quebec and Public Health. Here are the main measures implemented.
Triage Questionnaire for Covid-19:
On the day prior to your acupuncture appointment, please fill out this triage questionnaire, either online, or by phone.
Procedures to follow during your appointment:
During your appointment, you must:
o present yourself alone at the clinic as much as possible, and as close as possible to the agreed time to reduce your presence in the waiting room;
o respect the physical distance of 2 meters with the clinic staff and other patients as much as possible;
o put away your cell phone for the duration of your visit at the clinic;
o wash your hands for at least 20 seconds upon arrival and departure from the clinic;
o wear a face cover or mask;
o plan for payment of the session by electronic transfer. Your treatment receipt will also be electronic.
The acupuncturist is now required to wear a procedural mask and eye protection. The patient is required to wear a mask.
Since the cleaning and disinfection measures are already extensive in acupuncture, we are keeping our good practices. We have also raised our standards during the pandemic to ensure that all surfaces in contact with the patient and the therapist are kept clean during treatment.
