Provincewide State of Emergency Declared, Stay-at-Home Order in effect as of January 14
What this means for homeopaths and their patients
According to the updated regulation posted by the government on January 13, regulated health professionals are among those businesses permitted to open during the lockdown. However, as of this time, the CMOH Directive 2 appears still to be in place, with health-care providers continuing to operate with a preference for remote practice whenever possible.
All primary care providers are encouraged to implement a system for virtual and/or telephone consultations when and where possible. When possible, primary care providers should conduct a consultation over the phone, video or secure messaging to determine if a virtual/telephone consultation will suffice or if an in-person appointment is necessary. The purpose of this is to support physical distancing and minimize contact of persons who may have COVID-19 with health care settings as much as possible. In cases where in-person visits are necessary, appropriate measures, including PPE and infection control, should be implemented.
