Osteopathy BC members had suspended their hands-on practices during the critical phase of the COVID -19 outbreak. We are continuing to do our part to protect the public and our members and to slow the progress of this virus.
Osteopathy BC members are now able to resume practice with enhanced protocols to minimize the risk of infection with COVID-19. Starting May 19th, 2020 members will be putting in place measures to keep their patients, themselves and their staff as safe as possible while offering osteopathic treatment.
Please contact your practitioner to find out when they are reopening and what measures they are taking. Your visit to your osteopathic practitioner will not look the same as it did before COVID-19, but with your help we can all resume osteopathic treatments while minimizing infection risk.
