MATA Membership Renewal Extension & COVID-19 Recommendations

The MATA continues to keep up to date on the ever changing developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.  As this is an unprecedented and challenging time for our members, the MATA will be extending the membership renewal deadline to April 20, 2020.  This extension aims ease some of the burden on our members to complete their membership renewal for the 2020-21 membership year.

The MATA would like to emphasize that members and clinic owners should do their own risk assessment and determine what is best for individuals, patients and staff moving forward.  Should clinics choose to stay open, please ensure that diligent measures are taken including:

- Thorough cleaning of all equipment in between each patient
- Spacing of patients to allow for gaps in between appointments
- Pre-screening of patients over the phone as well as upon arrival into the clinic to determine if clients have travelled abroad in the past 14 days and/or are exhibiting any symptoms
- Limiting hands on treatment to a minimum where possible
- The use of gloves where applicable/necessary

The MATA recognizes that decisions being made with respect to COVID-19 come with consequences: personal, financial and ethical and these are very challenging times.  If you have specific questions moving forward, please contact the MATA at mata@sportmanitoba.ca.
