COVID-19 Restrictions in Calgary – Physiotherapist

Physiotherapists in Calgary recognize the critical role that physiotherapy plays in the overall health and wellbeing of Calgarians. We recognize that the COVID-19 situation is rapidly changing, which leads to uncertainty and anxiety. This makes it difficult to know what we can and cannot do. Our team at Brentwood Physiotherapy is committed to providing guidance to Calgarians stay informed and up to date during these times.

On Tuesday, Alberta Premier, Jason Kenny announced new restrictions. For the next 4 weeks, many of Albertas recreational activities will be postponed with indoor and outdoor gatherings being restricted to households. The goal of these measure is to slow the spread of COVID-19.
“COVID-19 is challenging us and we have to rise to the test.”
Alberta will suspend indoor group fitness programs, team sports, group performances. In addition to these measures, the restaurants, bars, casinos, recreational facilities, libraries, entertainment centers, hair salons, nail salons, personal wellness centers and gyms will be CLOSED. A mandatory work from home will effective December 13th for all businesses that are able to operate from home.

Below we have created a quick breakdown outlining these new measures.


Starting Wednesday December 13 2020, all restaurants, pubs and bars, residing in an area with 50 cases per 100k people, will be required to close. These businesses are allowed to operate via delivery/curbside pickup. In addition to these restrictions, Jason Kenny is urging Albertans to pause social gatherings in the homes. This measure is mandatory.

“If large private parties ignore these recommendations, we may have to consider enforcement action.”

These actions are a result of new evidence showing 45% of the spread of COVID-19 has been traced back to transmission at home and at social gatherings. Our team at Brentwood Physiotherapy takes the health of patients and their families very seriously. We are practicing the highest standards of sanitization and disinfection in the clinic. These procedures have been implemented by our COO, who has applied his background in chemistry to establish the highest level of health & safety. We will be monitoring the situation closely and at this time we will continue to remain open and accept new patients

All patients coming into our clinic are being pre-screened according the AHS directions and re-directed, if necessary to their family doctors, 811 or online to conduct a Covid-19 self assessment at:
