We are pleased to confirm that as part of the staged re-launch strategy recently announced by the Alberta Government, Encompass Sports Therapy is open for all of our services as of June 18th, 2020. Our chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, fascial stretch therapist and pedorthist are now available for appointments!
In order to ensure that our return to practice is as safe and appropriate as possible, we have enacted several operational, hygiene, and cleaning specific practices for the purpose of infection control and prevention.
Appointment booking procedures will now include symptom screening. Patients will be asked to take the AHS self-screening tool either online or over the phone with one of our administrative staff at the time of booking, as well as on the day of the appointment. Any person with symptoms or other cause for concern, according to the tool will be asked not to attend their appointment and will be referred to call 811 for further instruction.
Patients will also be advised of the clinic’s current policy of continuous masking for all persons in the clinic environment. Clinic staff will wear procedural/surgical masks, while patients may wear their own re-useable cloth mask, or, single-use procedural/surgical mask. In the event that patients or visitors do not have their own mask, the clinic will provide one at a fee to the patient.
Finally, please be advised that patient hand-cleaning will be required upon clinic entry and again following completion of the appointment.
We thank you sincerely for your careful consideration, understanding, and patience, and look very forward to returning to the clinic to serve you.
