A new announcement has been posted on the CMTNB member portal:

Covid-19 Update

CMTNB Members,

The Province of New Brunswick announced that Zone 3 has moved to the Orange phase due to recent outbreaks. Since Massage Therapy is a regulated health profession and may remain open in the Orange Phase, as announced in May, members in those zones can continue to provide services.

We recommend for therapists outside Zone 3 not to treat patients from Zone 3 at this time. In addition, members should add a question to their screening process, (Have you visited zone 3 last 14 days?), and if yes, should defer treatment.

We remind all members to follow the safety and sanitizing protocols, and to self monitor. If you show symptoms you need to contact Public Health for direction, and follow their guidance.

Thank you,


Dear ANBMT member,

Associations exist to provide services and benefits to their members. In contrast, Colleges require government oversight, exist for the safety of the public, and are accountable to the provincial government, including the Department of Health. Providing directives and practice advice is the role of the College of Massage Therapists of New Brunswick (CMTNB)–this is not the ANBMT's role or within its jurisdiction.

Having said this, the CMTNB provided its members with a notice on October 15, 2020, related to zones moving back to the orange level. Therefore, we can safely presume that this would be applicable to the current return to the orange level for the Moncton/Saint John regions. For confirmation on this, please contact the College (CMTNB). www.cmtnb.ca/en/

COVID-19 Update

CMTNB Members,

The Province of New Brunswick announced that Zone 1 and Zone 5 have moved to the Orange phase due to recent outbreaks. Since Massage Therapy is a regulated health profession and may remain open in the Orange Phase, as announced in May, members in those zones can continue to provide services.

We recommend for therapists outside Zones 1 and 5 not to treat patients from Zones 1 and 5 at this time. In addition, members should add a question to their screening process, (Have you visited zone 1 or 5 in the last 14 days?), and if yes, should defer treatment.

We remind all members to follow the safety and sanitizing protocols, and to self monitor. If you show symptoms you need to contact Public Health for direction, and follow their guidance.

Thank you,


 

Proud Member of the CMTA
