We are open!

We are pleased to say we are now reopen and will be treating patients under the new provincial health and WorkSafeBC guidelines.

First, on behalf of the Forte Family, we all hope you are staying healthy and well. We want to thank all of you that have called and emailed expressing your concern and care for us while we have been closed. Thanks for all your tremendous support!
We are excited that the Provincial Health Authority has allowed us along with the other health sector businesses to Re-open and start providing much needed physio services to you all once again starting Tuesday May 19th, following the long weekend.
Our priority is for yours and everyone’s safety. We will be following the guidelines that the Provincial Health Authority, WorkSafeBC, and the College of Physiotherapists of BC have instructed us on. Part of the safety measures we will be adopting include:
1. A protective barrier between the admin staff and the patients
2. Mandatory masks for all staff and patients in the clinic
3. Mandatory washing of hands upon entering the office
4. Regular wiping down/ disinfecting of equipment and surfaces after each use
5. Less patients in the clinic at any given time. We will only be booking patients every 30min, and keeping all appointments to 60min or less to avoid any over population and to keep with the social distancing regulations still in place
For those of you who feel comfortable returning to the clinic for appointments, we would be happy to accommodate you and you may call the office to schedule an appointment with your therapist any time. For those of you who do not feel comfortable returning to the office for an appointment at this time, or if you are feeling unwell and need to stay home, we will continue to offer tele-physio sessions (video chat style sessions/FaceTime etc.) from the comfort of your home.
We look forward to seeing you all soon and getting comfortable with the “new normal” circumstances. Thanks again for your patience, your support, and for keeping everyone around us safe.
