Updated Return to Practice Guidance and COVID-19 FAQ

In recent weeks most of Ontario moved into stage 3 of the province's reopening plan. In addition, municipalities around the province have implemented mandatory mask orders for indoor spaces. The PPE Strategy and Resuming Clinical Activities sections in the Return to Practice Guidance document have been updated to reflect some of these recent changes.

Members must comply with the requirements set out in the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 Operational Requirements: Health Sector Restart document and familiarize themselves with their specific municipal by-laws. Please note that if a municipal by-law differs from the Ministry of Health’s requirements, TCM practitioners and acupuncturists should apply the higher standard.

Two new questions have also been added to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource FAQ to help address masking concerns.
