COVID-19 Office Update

We have received an update from BC’s Public Health Officer (PHO) and the College of Chiropractors of B.C. (CCBC) regarding mask requirements and have updated our office policies to take effect as of Monday April 11, 2022. Please know that the health and safety of our employees and practice members remains our top priority and a few protocols will remain in place as noted below.

As of Monday April 11, 2022:

  1. Face masks will no longer be mandatory; however, they are still recommended.
  2. Our Chiropractors and Laser Therapists will continue to wear face masks in the treatment rooms. Our front desk staff are no longer required to wear a face mask.
  3. Our reception area, treatment rooms, and washroom will continue to be thoroughly cleaned between each patient.
  4. A maximum of four (4) practice members will be allowed in our reception area at a time. Please check in with the front desk upon arrival and we will inform you when the treatment room will be ready. You may be asked to wait outside the front doors for a few minutes while we prepare for your appointment.
  5. The plexiglass barrier will remain at the front desk – we kindly ask that you do not touch the plexiglass or place any personal items on the desk.

In addition,

  1. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask you to postpone your appointment by a minimum of 14 days or until you have a negative COVID-19 test result.
  2. Stay home if you are experiencing symptoms of cold and flu. If you have an appointment scheduled and you feel under the weather, please contact our office as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment.

If at any time during your visit with us you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, PLEASE communicate that to one of the team members or the Chiropractor and we will do everything in our power to resolve it and help you feel safe or reschedule your appointment.

“In addition to following masking requirements established by employers and operators as part of their workplace communicable disease plans, [[the PHO]] recommend[[s]] the continued use of medical masks by practitioners and patients/clients in medical offices, private practices and other settings when there is close, in-person patient/client contact. As well, [[the PHO]] recommend[[s]] a continued focus by health care professionals on diligent hand washing, immunization, respecting personal space, regular cleaning and disinfection, ensuring appropriate ventilation, and staying home when sick.”

Accordingly, the wearing of masks during treatment is recommended by the PHO, but not mandatory.

Please note that these expectations are subject to change at any time.

Appointment Scheduling

Our appointment booking system has undergone some transformation in order to keep you safe. We are spacing out appointments to allow us time to thoroughly clean in between each appointment and to minimize the number of patients in the office at one time so we can safely maintain physical distance protocols. Due to this, there are fewer appointment times available and there may be a longer wait to see the Chiropractor.

Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to get our practice members back into the office in a timely manner.


Please call the office to schedule your next appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Dr. Kim & Dr. Pierre DesLauriers
