The CNESST has updated the guide aimed at supporting the management of occupational health and safety (OHS) in workplaces such as massage therapy (outside health care settings). The information contained in this guide is drawn from the recommendations produced, among others, by the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ). The latest adjustments to workplace health measures (outside health care settings) are summarized in this table:
Adjustments to the health measures in the workplace (excluding care settings)
In order to obtain the applicable measures for your clientele, you must refer to the instructions of the Direction générale de la santé publique.

Steps for limiting the spread of respiratory infectious diseases
It is normally recommended not to massage the limb where the person was vaccinated (most often the arm) for 24 to 48 hours after the vaccine. In the case of the COVID-19 vaccine, the same recommendations apply. If the person has symptoms following the vaccination, we recommend that you wait until they have disappeared before giving a massage. We remind you that it is important to maintain the sanitary measures in effect whether the client is vaccinated or not. For more information, we invite you to contact the regional public health department in your area or call the Info-COVID line at 1-877-644-4545.
