Update: September 2, 2021 - Latest BC Government Update on restrictions

          https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/info/restrictions

Update: August 10 2021 - There has been a significant rise in cases especially in the Interior Health Region and Creston is being affected. Patients need to be prepared to wear a mask (which will be provided) during treatment even though they may be fully vaccinated.

As of June 30, 2021 CMTBC has substantially revised the Interim Guidelines for Return to Practice (COVID-19) to reflect BC’s transition to Step 3 of the province’s Restart Plan and a change in focus to communicable disease prevention.
 
Going forward, the following will be in effect until further notice:

     - 24-48 hour Pre-screening is encouraged but no longer necessary, HOWEVER Patients must arrive at their appointment with no signs of communicable disease. If they have signs of COVID-19, they are to contact public health at 8-1-1 and arrange to be tested.

    Patients who are actively ill, who are not fully recovered from an illness or who aren’t sure and  “may be coming down with something” will be required to postpone treatment until they are well. Patients arriving for appointments who are not fully well will be sent home.

     - Public health authorities recommend the use of masks in public indoor settings for individuals aged 12+ who are not fully vaccinated.  
    
     - Step 3 of BC’s Restart Plan is a careful, graded transition that relies on honest communication and consistent safety protocols.
    
    We still remain in a pandemic situation and need to be aware that Covid-19 and its variants are still infecting people. Immunization and preventive measures such as wearing masks,  frequent hand-washing and cleaning protocols continue to play a significant role in reducing the spread and severity of this and other diseases.

    Patients are required to wear a mask at all times while in the clinic, wash or sanitize their hands upon arrival, avoid touching their face and be prepared to answer pre-screening questions as deemed necessary. Sanitizer and tissues will continue to be available in reception, washroom and treatment room.
