Why is Back in Motion continuing to require masks when they are no longer mandatory?

Back in Motion’s top priority is the safety of all clients and staff.  As a health care provider, it’s especially important that we take all measures possible to prevent transmission of communicable diseases like COVID-19.  We need to consider that many of the treatments offered are 60 minutes or longer in length and cannot be delivered while maintaining physical distancing.  When considering all the factors, we have decided that the continued requirement for all staff and clients to wear masks while in our facilities was the most prudent and socially responsible approach.

Will Back in Motion’s policies be updated?

We are evaluating our communicable disease plan on a weekly basis and will be updating it with information from public health and WorkSafeBC as made available to us.
