POLICIES AND PROCEDURES:
Atlas Therapeutic and its staff have implemented many new policies and procedures based on the recommendations and requirements of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, Ministry of Health and Peterborough Public Health.
While our cleaning and disinfecting standards were high before COVID-19, the scope and frequency has changed. Where we were cleaning the door handles, bathrooms and any other area the client may touch/use multiple times a day, we will now be addressing those areas after every client, so we ask that you let us know when you have used the restroom so that we can ensure that it is disinfected prior to another client’s use. This is in addition to our regular cleaning and disinfecting schedule which happens a minimum of once daily and includes the floors. We use ES364 for the reception area, hallway and bathroom areas.
Our treatment rooms have always been disinfected (tables and face cradles, door handles, light switches, lotion bottles etc) after every client. We will be using ES15 in our treatment rooms, it has a 5 minute kill time, and because of this will need additional time between clients to ensure a thorough cleaning.
For our float rooms, we have always cleaned and disinfected every surface and object in the room. In our float rooms and tanks we use ES15 which has a kill time of 5 minutes. Our float tanks get a deep clean daily in addition to having the filter run after every client as well as hourly when not occupied.
Hand hygiene has always been a priority in our clinic and happens before and after every client interaction and any cleaning/disinfection. We have always had hand sanitizer available at the front entrance and in every treatment room, and we ask that clients use it when entering the building as well as before and after treatment. The bathroom and hallway sinks are also available for clients to wash their hands.
WHAT TO EXPECT FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT:
24 hours before your appointment you will receive an email with a COVID-19 Pre-screening Questionnaire.
When you come to the clinic for your appointment we ask that you do not arrive more than 5 minutes early.
When you arrive please text/call the front desk at 705-745-8869 to let us know you have arrived. Our door will be locked to ensure control over the number of people in the clinic at one time. We will be taking your temperature upon arrival and ask you to sanitize your hands on entry.
DAILY COVID-19 SCREENING FOR STAFF:
Every staff member will be required to answer the COVID-19 screening questionnaire and have their temperature checked each day before starting work to ensure client’s safety.
