As per the email sent to membership earlier today, the MATA is pleased to communicate to members that we have received clarification on the new restrictions and how the Athletic Therapy profession fits within them.

Certified Athletic Therapists are able to continue to treat patients during the Critical level (red) period of the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System. 

As per the Manitoba Government Backgrounder, released today, Athletic Therapists will fall under the 'Therapeutic Care' heading where it states that regulated professions and massage therapists can continue to provide services.  

Athletic Therapists must still ensure that all proper PPE is utilized, physical distancing (where possible) is maintained, and environmental cleaning continues as per the requirements previously communicated.
