NOTICE to Patients regarding resuming in-office appointments

The College of Psychologists of Ontario continues to recommend that when practical and clinically appropriate in keeping with client's best interest, members are encouraged to provide services virtually rather than having clients receive psychological services in person.  In cases where the psychologist deems that specific clients need to return to  in-person service, either for one appointment or to resume full appointments  psychologists  must remember the need for physical distancing and proper infection control.  The College very strongly recommends members consider  Public health protocols which limit the spread of Covid 19 and advise patients and office staff accordingly.  The College has provided psychologists with a list of those protocols.  As such appointments will continue to be provided remotely by phone or video unless specified by your psychologist /provider.
