Effective Monday, December 14, 2020, the Ontario government will move the York Region Public Health and Windsor-Essex County Health Unit into the Lockdown stage of the COVID-19 Framework. Five other public health regions will also move into stronger levels of public health measures. Please see this announcement from the Ontario government for more information. Health services remain open, and TCM Practitioners and Acupuncturists in these regions may continue to operate.
As regulated health professionals, CTCMPAO members must continue to follow the requirements set out in the Chief Medical Officer of Health Directive 2, COVID-19 Operational Requirements: Health Sector Restart, and the College's Return to Practice Guidance Document.
All members are expected to continue to follow strict infection prevention and control protocols to prioritize the safety of their patients, staff and community.
