COVID-19 – New Policies and Procedures

COVID-19 – New Policies and Procedures 2020-09-23T14:52:42+00:00
  • Two Step Screening Protocol – 24-48 hours prior to your appointment via email reminder and again when you arrive at Butterfly for your visit. Only clients and essential visitors who screen negative will be seen in-centre.
  • Essential Visitors ONLY – in order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission we ask that only one parent/guardian attend the appointment with the client (no siblings).
  • Face coverings – all clients and essential visitors will be asked to bring and wear their own mask for the duration of their visit at Butterfly (children under 2 years of age are not required to wear a mask but for children of any age we can only do our best to encourage it, it is not mandatory). Therapists will be wearing masks and possibly face shields.
  • Hand Hygiene – all clients, essential visitors and staff will wash their hands prior to and after each session with hand soap and water in the washroom or hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer will be available at each treatment area and at the front door as you leave.

  • Process for Booking Appointments – please book with your therapist directly at the time of the appointment or call 905-206-0300 or email info@butterflytherapy.com in order to book with Mary. Please remember that therapist schedules will vary as our capacity is be reduced.
  • No waiting area – we ask that families arrive on time for their appointment and text or email their therapist. Therapists will come to unlock the door, review the screen and take you directly into the treatment area.

Butterfly will continue to offer virtual services. Virtual services may be recommended for your child by their therapist.
