The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) causes the disease known as COVID-19 which has a long incubation period of up to 2 weeks. Carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be contagious. The close contact nature of massage therapy and the length of time being in an enclosed space for prolonged periods elevate the risk of contracting the novel coronavirus.
Your health and safety are of the utmost importance. In order to provide safe and effective treatments, I have implemented the following protocols to protect you as well as myself. These protocols follow mandatory requirements as set forth by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario and the Ministry of Health.
