On April 30, 2020, the Alberta Government announced the Relaunch Strategy that will begin to allow the reopening of businesses. Acupuncturists are expected to resume in-person services in Stage 2 of the Relaunch Strategy, but the specific timing of Stage 2 reopening is yet to be determined. The Guidelines are intended for Acupuncturists to plan and prepare in accordance with the CAAA requirements to enable safe practice and prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Guidelines do NOT imply Acupuncturists can re-open. Acupuncturists are not approved to re-open yet under current CMOH Order 16-2020 and must wait for further Public Health directives.
