The College continues to monitor developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic and will update this page as information becomes available or changes. We acknowledge this has been a challenging time for healthcare professionals and the healthcare system. The safety of the public, including kinesiologists, remains our top priority. We appreciate your patience as we monitor and interpret guidance and, most importantly, your unwavering commitment to providing safe care to your patients/clients.
For the latest information on restrictions in place in Ontario, view the Ontario Government’s COVID-19 web page.
See our FAQs, below, for advice on practising during current COVID-19 health measures.
Guidance for practising during COVID-19
Kinesiologists and their employers must assess the risks of providing service in-person and implement appropriate infection control and prevention measures. You should also monitor the spread of COVID-19 in your community as you make decisions about providing service. You can refer to data from the Ontario Government, Public Health Ontario and your local public health unit.
Kinesiologists must observe any provincial or local public health measures that may impact their ability to offer services. Kinesiologists may consider providing virtual services on an ongoing basis where in-person services may not be safe, or based on patient preferences and individual circumstances.
