COVID -19 

Effective May 26, 2020 kinesiologists and other regulated health professionals can, when all necessary precautions and protocols are in place to protect patients/clients and themselves, gradually and carefully begin providing all services, including non-essential services.

 

            Your health is my first priority and so, to help protect you and myself from any potential spread of COVID-19, the following precautions and procedures will be put in place and followed:

 

  • I will follow any guidelines put out by the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario and the Government of Ontario.

  • As of January 14 2022, I will have both doses of vaccination plus the booster shot. I will monitor my own health. If I feel unwell or have symptoms of COVID19, then I will cancel sessions. I will get a COVID-19 rapid test in regular intervals.

  • Prior to each session, I will take clients through a screening questionnaire. If it results in a positive result then the session will be cancelled - without charge - and the client will be asked to call telehealth Ontario prior to their primary care provider for further clinical assessment.

  • Before and after each session I will wash or sanitize my hands. Clients will be asked to do the same.

  • I will wear a mask (minimally level 3 procedural mask) during the session.

  • Clients are encouraged to also wear a mask. It may be removed during exercise. FST clients will be required to wear a mask throughout the session.

  • Only equipment that is owned by the client will be used during sessions to eliminate any sharing of equipment. If my equipment is used, it will be sanitized before and after the session.

  • I will continue to see clients who live in retirement residences as long as the home is not in outbreak. If an outbreak declared, sessions will be cancelled until the outbreak is over. I will follow guidelines as put forth by the homes – such as undergoing a screening questionnaire upon arrival and leaving, undergoing COVID-19 testing, wearing a mask, sanitizing between clients, limiting movement within common areas.

  • Virtual sessions or a combination of in-person and virtual sessions are available to those clients who wish to use it and if appropriate.

UPDATE DEC 23 2020:

As of Dec 26, 2020, Ontario is entering the 'grey zone' (lockdown). Registered Kineisology is an essential services and so are permitted to continue during this lockdown. One on one sessions are allowed, group sessions are not allowed. 

There will be no changes for any current clients of Carrie Doll Kinesiology. During the grey zone, I will be accepting new clients for virtual sessions only. The option to transition to in person sessions once out of grey zone will be available. Complimentary discovery calls will continue to be available. 

UPDATE JAN 12 2021:

As of Jan 14 2021, Ontario is entering a 'stay-at-home' order as well as a state of emergency. Kinesiology as a regulated health profession is considered an essential service. These orders will not affect current clients of Carrie Doll Kinesiology. 

I will be accepting new clients for virtual sessions only. The option to transition to in person sessions once of the grey zone will be available. Complimentary discovery calls will continue to be available during this time.

Ontario is no longer under the 'stay-at-home' order. Pandemic advisories remain in place (masks, physical distancing etc).
