Effective May 26, 2021 - Message from the College of Chiropractors of Ontario: The Chief Medical Officer of Health has released Directive #2 for Health Care Providers, dated April 20, 2021 (the “Directive). The Directive addresses “the need to ramp down non-emergent and non-urgent surgeries and procedures in order to preserve system capacity to deal effectively with COVID-19”.
CCO’s understanding, as confirmed in discussions with other regulatory partners, is that the Directive is not intended to stop all non-urgent health care services. The Ministry of Health Emergency Operations Centre has stated that the Directive is intended to preserve health human resources for redeployment to intensive care where needed and to stop procedures that could tax intensive care resources (e.g., procedures that carry higher risks of hospitalization or utilize health human resources that could be redeployed to intensive care).
CCO has asked for further clarification about the Directive. As of now, there is no change or restriction to the current practice of chiropractic in Ontario, consistent with CCO, Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario guidance.
