COVID-19 Update: 19th July 2021 - SOME safety measures continue

Mandatory Government COVID-19 safety measures were removed from Monday 19th July 2021.

However:-

  • Acupuncture South Devon, following advice from its governing body (British Acupuncture Council) and having considered the continuing risks of COVID-19, especially in our locality with case numbers rising to unprecedented levels, there will limited alterations to treatments at this stage.
  • The Watermark Building (which hosts Acupuncture South Devon) will be fully open to the public again, face coverings will be encouraged in communal areas with social distancing where possible.

Therefore, after 19th July 2021 when attending an appointment with Acupuncture South Devon, enter the Watermark and proceed directly via the stairs or the lift, to the Second Floor reception area where you’ll be met. You’re requested to continue to use a face covering as the clinic is considered to be an enclosed space. At this stage the appointment’s face-to-face time will remain at 30 minutes and COVID Secure hygiene practices will continue.

These being:-

  • clinic ventilation,
  • sanitising clinic between patients,
  • hand cleanser,
  • remote initial consultation,
  • QR Code availability
  • and contacting patients 24 hours prior to appointment

I will continue to review these measures in line with local case numbers and British Acupuncture Council guidance to maintain my patient’s safety.
