Two Ontario doctors have been banned from issuing medical exemptions for COVID-19 vaccines, masking and testing requirements.
The province’s medical regulator says the restrictions on Dr. Mark Trozzi and Dr. Rochagne Kilian went into effect just before midnight on Friday.
The Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons says physicians should also post posters regarding these restrictions in their offices and during virtual visits with patients.
The university says the interim orders were issued under the provisions of the Regulated Health Professions Act, which allow the regulator to impose restrictions or conditions on a member’s license if it believes the conduct in question “exposes or is likely to expose patients to harm or injury. “
The organization says the doctors have not been referred to their court regarding the restrictions at this time.
The university’s public records list Kilian as a family physician in Owen Sound, but do not show any specialty or primary practice location for Trozzi.
