The members of the Alberta Association of Osteopathic Manual Therapists (AAOMT) have effectively been able resume their practice (with enhanced safety measures) as of June 12, 2020 when the province of Alberta officially entered Phase 2.
Please expect various new protocols to be put in place, such as increased sanitation, COVID-19 screening questions, and masks (mandatory in certain cities in Alberta). These new protocols have been put in place to minimize the risk of infection with COVID-19 for the patients, therapists and staff. Please be mindful that your therapists and their staff are only following government mandates and by-laws. Please be kind and patient, as they navigate through these uncertain times with you. We are all in this together.
Feel free to contact your osteopathic manual therapist or their clinic directly to understand the new measures that they are taking to ensure everyone's safety.
