COVID-19 Update: Updated Directive #2 for Health Care Providers

On Tuesday, February 1, 2022, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health issued an update to Directive #2 for Health Care Providers. The updated directive allows for the cautious resumption of some non-emergent and non-urgent surgeries and procedures by regulated health professionals.

This update does not affect TCM practitioners and acupuncturists if your practice does not include any procedures that fit the definition as described in the directive.

For more information, the Ministry of Health has published a Q and A for Directive 2. Please also visit our COVID-19 webpage for more COVID-19 information and resources.

The College continues to monitor the situation and will update our guidance as necessary.
