Jennifer Kowerchuk Acupuncture Updates

Operating under COVID-19 procedures


New location:

As of June 2020 I moved my practice to a new location off Whyte Avenue: #202D 7718 104 Street. 


I have implemented the following protocols in my new space in order to comply with the new regulations from the Alberta government to keep staff and patients safe:


When you arrive for your appointment:

  • Please arrive on time for your appointment, no more than 5 minutes early. Our waiting room will have 2 plastic, wipeable chairs that are spaced 2 meters apart for social distancing. 

  • You must wear a face mask as soon as you enter the clinic. This is especially important during your treatment since we won't be able to maintain a 2 meter distance. While you are encouraged to bring your own mask, we can supply you a mask for a small fee to cover costs which can be added to your bill. Please feel free to bring your own mask!

  • You will be required to wash your hands immediately upon entering the clinic. We will have hand sanitizer available at the entrance of the clinic.

  • One patient per appointment. We ask that you only bring yourself to your appointment to ensure physical distancing.


Pre-screening:

  • As per provincial guidelines, we will now have a MANDATORY Covid-19 pre-screening questionnaire and waiver to be signed before every appointment. 

  • If you are sick, have a fever, cough, etc., please cancel your appointment. We will reschedule it for you after 14 days.

  • Practitioners will also have to do a pre-screening before each shift. Please be patient with us if we need to reschedule your appointment if this is necessary.


Cleaning Procedures:

  • Increased procedures for cleaning and disinfecting of high traffic areas. This includes: door knobs, light switches, desks, chairs, etc.

  • Practitioners are required to wear face masks while in the clinic.

  • All communal items that cannot be sanitized have been removed from the waiting area, such as brochures, magazines, water cooler. Please bring your own water with you.

  • Patients will be given a plastic, wipeable bin to place their clothes and possessions in for the duration of their treatment. Please limit the amount of items you bring in with you.

  • Payment will now be taken online as to avoid the use of a point of sales machine, and to limit the amount of patient’s time in the clinic, please complete your patient profile in our new booking software Janeapp including payment information.


Booking changes:

  • Until we get through the wait-list of patients that had to cancel their appointments during quarantine, we will be limiting massage treatments to 60 minutes.

  • We will be working modified hours for the foreseeable future to allow for thorough cleaning of rooms, and limiting contact between patients.


Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we get settled. We can't wait to see you again!


Sincerely,

Jennifer Kowerchuk
