BE SAFE. BE WELL.
Moving towards "normal" !
As Nova Scotia moves into Phase 5 on September 15, Public Health requirements and the College of Physiotherapists guidelines will remain firmly adhered to.
When booking an appointment, our staff will complete a health screen with you. This Nova Scotia public health questionnaire asks about known symptoms of COVID-19 and of risk and exposure. All patients must pass the screen before an in-clinic appointment can be provided. On the day of your appointment(s), you are asked to complete a self-assessment using the same public health screen; this will be emailed to you.
If you have any cold or flu-like symptom, please contact us to reschedule your appointment; call (902)752-9926 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Also please review Public Health's alert list of potential exposure sites. If you visited one of exposure sites, during the time and date stated, please follow Public Health's directions and and please call to reschedule your appointment.

Personal Protective Equipment, Hygiene, and Cleaning
Because most of ActiveLife's services require close and prolonged contact, therapists will continue to wear masks. Patients are asked to wear community masks to their appointments.
Patients are asked to wear or bring therapy appropriate clothing. For instance, if you have a physiotherapy appointment for your shoulder wear a tank top and if your knee is to be examined, wear loose shorts.
Patients are asked to wash/sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting the clinic.
Patient treatment rooms and equipment are disinfected after every appointment. Frequent and thorough cleaning of the clinic is assured.
ActiveLife will look different when you visit us next. Plexiglass barriers are mounted on the reception desks, waiting room chairs are few, and directional flow lines are on the floor. At all times, there will be fewer people within the clinic to adhere to provincial regulations. There are physical distancing signs within the clinic and within the Aberdeen Business Centre. Please make space to be safe.
The Nova Scotia government website on coronavirus ( https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/staying-healthy/ ) offers valuable tips to help you stay well during this challenging period. The ActiveLife team recommends that you review it to learn about community masks, hand washing, physical distancing and more.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
