Legacies Health Centre Ltd.
Communicable Disease Prevention Plan


(Updated January 12, 2022)

The Health and Safety of our clients and staff is Legacies Health Centre’s #1 priority.

On January 7, the PHO requested that we re-activate our COVID-19 Safety Plan to make our clinics safe for clients and staff. Our plan was updated and re-activated on January 12, 2022. 

Legacies Health Centre has made changes to the facilities, operational and administrative processes:

Facilities

  • Plexiglass barriers at reception
  • Daily janitorial services in all locations
  • Hourly disinfecting of high-touch surfaces
  • Traffic flow marked on floors: walking “lanes” and “no go” zones
  • Hand sanitizing stations
  • Informative signage throughout the clinic and washrooms
  • Staff dedicated to gym hygiene and monitoring of the physical distancing guidelines
  • Treatment room and equipment sanitization between every appointment
  • Care taken to ventilate or air-out rooms between clients

Operations

  • Screening of all clients both prior to arrival and upon arrival at our clinics
  • Staff and Visitors to the Clinic screened for symptoms prior to entry to clinics
  • Request that clients arrive only at appointment times
  • Physical distancing reminders and enforcement
  • Modified assessment and treatment protocols
  • Use of Medical Grade (ASTM 1) masks by all staff 
  • Requirement for clients and visitors over the age of 5 to wear Medical  Masks (ASTM 1)
  • Reduced number of people in offices, reception and gyms.  Occupancy signs posted within the clinic
  • Telehealth Services are offered, which may be combined with in-clinic appointments.

Administrative

  • This COVID Safety Plan is in place and is based on guidance provided by Public Health, WorkSafeBC and each clinician’s professional regulatory body
  • Training provided to all staff on cleaning and safety protocols. Review of policies and procedures is undertaken at regular intervals
  • Education on hand hygiene, physical distancing, use of personal protective equipment is posted in the clinic for both staff and clients 
  • Education is provided to staff and clients about staying home when sick 
  • Policies in place to support staff to stay home when sick and to notify close contacts if an exposure occurs in our clinics

Mask Policy

COVID-19 is spread by liquid droplets that come from the mouth and nose when a person coughs, sneezes, talks, laughs, yells or sings. Wearing a mask should be combined with other measures including hand washing and physical distancing since use of a mask is not enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Masks are mandatory in public indoor settings for all people 5 and older as per the PHO Order (Face Coverings COVID-19, December 3, 2021).  

Legacies Health Centre requires that Medical Masks (ASTM 1) are worn in our facilities in order to maintain the health and safety of our clients and staff.

If you don’t have a mask, we will happily provide you with one for the duration of your visit. 

Clients are required to wear a mask during treatment and in all common areas of the clinic, except when eating or drinking 

You don’t have to wear a mask if:

  • You are under 5 years old
  • You are unable to wear a mask because of a health condition or physical or mental impairment
  • You are unable to put on or remove a mask without help from another person
