Clinic Temporary Closing- COVID-19 Pre-caution-

*TEMPORARY CLOSING*
 
Dear clients,
With the recent news of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak and the need for social distancing as well as Boston public School systems closing to help stop this pandemic from spreading through our community, we feel it is our duty to close the clinic for at least 2 weeks to help keep our staff and clients safe from the possibility of unknown infection.
We will be closing our doors and cancelling all appointments starting Monday March 16th, 2020 through Sunday March 29th to comply with the most current medical recommendations by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO)- which is to practice “extensive social distancing”. That is to say the best advice at this time is to stay home, within your family unit, and to eliminate all non-essential physical contact with others.
We will continue to closely monitor the CDC and WHO’s recommendations and will reassess the situation as more information comes to light. It is possible we will have to close for more than 2 weeks but in the meantime we will keep appointments on the books and take it day by day.
With that said we understand this is a VERY difficult thing to do and we know you rely on your weekly or monthly appointments with us for pain management, immune boosting, stress management and many other different health issues.
The population most at risk for complications from COVID-19 are those that are over the age of 60, those that are immune-compromised as well as those with underlying lung conditions, heart disease and diabetes. MANY of our clients fall into these categories. This virus is extremely contagious and is transmissible even when people are asymptomatic. Therefore, sick policies asking people to stay at home when they are ill are dangerously ineffective.
In light of this new information, we can not take any risk in compromising the health and well being of all of our patients. Greater social distancing NOW, before more people get sick, will significantly improve our community’s chances of stopping the spread of the virus and overwhelming our hospital with more patients then they can give proper care to.
Please understand that we are still here for you, sending you and your families positive healing energy during these very trying times and we will continue to keep you updated via our website and social media as new information emerges and changes to status of the clinic continue.
We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy during this very stressful time and we look forward to seeing and treating you again when we are able to re-open our doors in the future.
