The College of Nurses of Ontario has kindly honoured my request for verification on policies in regards to the gradual opening of medical aesthetics practice. With CNO’s permission, we are sharing that letter with you.

Dear Tracey,

I appreciate that you want to share this information and want to emphasize the gradual reopening of services to help ensure patient safety.

I hope this is helpful and that it will help provide support to your followers/audience.

Sincerely, Cindy
