We've made this difficult, yet well informed decision
Dear Patients & Athlete's Care Team
We have been closely monitoring the public health information related to the development of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) over the last number of days and weeks. It is well documented that transmission of the novel coronavirus is through droplets in breath and contact with infected individuals and surfaces. Toronto Public Health recommendations for social distancing include avoiding shaking hands and non-essential interactions with others.
Despite the cleaning and sanitization procedures that we have implemented at Athlete's Care and the diligence of our team in maintaining a safe workplace for staff, patients and visitors. The team at Athlete's Care believes we must do our part to ensure the well-being of the community.
As a result, as of Tuesday March 17, 2020, Athlete's Care Sports Medicine Centres will be closed to all patients.
We understand that a number of you consider the services we provide as essential services in promoting your physical and mental well-being. We don’t take our role in supporting your health lightly. We will remain closed until Sunday March 22,2020 and at that time provide you with an update as the situation evolves.
We appreciate your support in our effort to deal with the current situation.
Your healthcare team at Athlete's Care Sports Medicine Centres
