Arrive at Your Scheduled Time.
  • If you arrive early please wait in your car. You may use the online self check-in tool or call 604-880-2044 to let Dani know you have arrived early. She will let you know if it is safe to come up..
  • Otherwise, try to arrive within 5 minutes of your appointment time and please wait in the hallway outside the doors to Suite 300. Dani will come to get you for your appointment.
Enter the Office Alone (if possible).
  • Only parents/guardians of minors seeking treatment or those needing assistance are permitted to have a guest with them during treatment at this time.
  • Please inform Dani by phone or email prior to your appointment if a guest will be present so they can also be pre-screened for COVID-19.
Bring and Wear a Face Mask (if possible).
  • Patients are required to wear a face mask to their appointment.
  • If you do not have one, there will be single use masks available in the office.
  • If you are unable to wear a mask due to an existing medical reason, please contact Dani to ensure that other arrangements can be made to increase safety for both of you during treatment.

Perform Hand Hygiene.
  • All patients are asked to wash or sanitize their hands at the start and end of the appointment.

Use the Washroom Before You Arrive.
  • Public washrooms are available for use; however, you are encouraged to use the washroom before you leave home to reduce the areas of possible exposure.
  • Please note that Foster Acupuncture is located in a shared office space so although Dani can ensure her treatment room has been sanitized, she does not have control over common spaces such as the washrooms.

Important Considerations

It is impossible to provide acupuncture treatment while maintaining appropriate physical distance. This means that despite all of the abovementioned precautions, it is impossible to eliminate all possible risks involved with in-person acupuncture treatment. Please consider your own tolerance of risk when considering visiting the office.

Help Reduce the Spread of COVID-19

  • Maintain physical distancing.
  • If you need to cough or sneeze, do so into your elbow or a tissue. Immediately sanitize your hands after.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
