At Apex Therapy Services, our continued goal is to maintain the health and safety of our clients and therapists and we therefore continue to follow the Manitoba Health directives closely as they pertain to the Coronavirus pandemic and recommended practices. Despite Manitoba continuing to improve in terms of COVID-19 infections and reduced restrictions, Apex Therapy Services will continue to maintain the following standards to protect our clients and therapists while COVID-19 variants of concern are present in our communities:
- Screening: a phone call or on-line screening tool linked to our website will be completed by a client prior to an appointment. A client will not be seen by a therapist should there be any symptoms/signs suggestive of viral infection such as a cough, runny nose, fever, difficulty breathing, headaches, sore throat, and/or general weakness present in the client’s household.
- Advanced sanitization: all client meetings will occur with advanced sanitization and hygiene practices which will also include protective barriers (PPE).
- Social distancing: the therapist will attempt to maintain greater than 2-meter distance whenever possible during interaction with a client.
- Video-conferencing, phone calls: If a client does not pass the screening questions or Manitoba Health directives become more restrictive, the therapist may chose to use a form of electronic communication rather than an in-person meeting to complete the applicable assessment or intervention.
All clients are advised to contact Apex Therapy Services immediately should they believe to have COVID-19, cold, or flu-like symptoms. If you suspect that you have COVID-19, it is also recommended you contact Health Links at: 1-888-315-9257 to receive further direction.
