Melrose Physiotherapy Toronto - pt Health
In response to COVID-19, pt Health is doing its part to help protect patients and our teams by modifying the delivery of services at our clinic. We remain open in select communities across Canada to treat patients requiring urgent care and to provide virtual care options.
For clinics that are providing in-person services, we have put in place active measures including enhanced hygiene practices, social distancing and pre-screening before anyone enters the clinic as per the Public Health Agency of Canada and continue to monitor federal and provincial colleges, to ensure our policies are aligned.
If you are feeling ill, have traveled outside of Canada in the past 14 days, or have come in contact with someone who is suspected to have COVID-19, please reach out to your local public health agency. If you need to reschedule an existing booking, please contact us by calling: 1 (888) 707-4410
