Omichron variant of concern
Unfortunately, Omichron has arrived. Science tells us that it is more transmissable, so wearing a really good, well-fitting mask is paramount. If you feel ill, please be respectful towards your practitioner and stay home. For most appointments, we can offer virtual care. For those that can't be transferred to a video chat, we will gladly reschedule.
To everyone that got vaccinated, thank-you so very much for thinking of the children and vulernable communities. A reminder that boosters are now available. For those that can not receive the vaccine, the thoughtfulness and community-minded decisions of the majority of our population who rolled up their sleeves is appreciated on the deepest levels. All staff, associates, contractors and practitioners that are associated with Brownstone Health have had at least 2 doses of vaccination against C-19, and most already have their booster shots.
Brownstone Health has several different regulated (licensed) health care professions working out of the clinic. Each of these professions has different requirements- although a private business, the clinic itself does not have the power to make decisions. We have to follow the direction of the regulatory bodies to ensure our professionals keep their licenses in good standing- thus the ability for you to have your insurance recognize their credentials.
Brownstone Health will comply with the regulatory body requirements of:
- No in-person treatment will be provided for any client feeling ill or advised to isolate. Virtual care will remain.
- Masks will still be required for both practitioners and clients.
- Hand sanitization or hand washing will be required at entry.
- Covid screening questions will be done with your practitioner.
Our clinic will continue electrostatically misting. We also invested significantly in re-routing and improving our ventilation system during the lockdown of 2020.
With regards to masking, we have immunocompromized staff working as part of our healthcare team. We will provide the safest working conditions possible to enable them to continue to treat their patients. This is why we respectfully request that you continue masking.
