Gift of Time & COVID-19 Clinic Update

Happy Spring Everyone! As one colleague has put it, we have been given the gift of time during this pandemic. This is one of those situations that like the weather, is completely out of our control, however what we can control is our thoughts and our emotions. Yes, this can suck on so many levels, but what are some of the positives that you can think about regarding this gift of time?

Many people talk about how they wish they had enough time to focus on their health, well guess what, for some of you this is that opportunity to get into some better lifestyle habits, such as proper sleep patterns, walking regularly, eating better, doing some meditation or an easy stretching or yoga routine. You may want to journal or read, just do one thing different per day that will add to your healthy lifestyle.

By now most of you will have heard that the province has man-dated a closure of all non-essential services.Chiropractic falls under the Health Care umbrella that can open for emergency or acute cases. If you have a flare up or a new complaint and require care or have any questions, please call my cell number or text me at 647-993-2488 and leave a message if I am not immediately available. I will return your call as soon as possible.

Anyone who has an upcoming appointment for March, should have already been contacted by phone or text and your appointments moved to a later date. I will be contacting people this week, who have early April appointments to move them out to a later date.

Remember to follow the recommendations of social distancing and erring on the side of caution. The best way to halt this whole thing is prevention and it all starts with you. As social beings, I understand the need for community and there are many ways to keep in touch with others, via social media, phones, texts and emails. Now may also be a great time to reach out to others that you haven’t seen or heard from in a long time “because you were so busy”. A simple hello or just a check-in to make sure they are alright or if they need anything.

The above is a 7-step procedure You Tube video of “How to Wash Your Hands like Doctors”, that one of my colleagues passed along to me and I thought would interest you as well. Just click onto the picture and it will take you to the link.

Be safe and feel free to reach out via e-mail, phone or text to let us know how you are keeping busy during this!

COVID-19 UPDATE

WHAT WE ARE DOING AND ASKING OTHERS TO DO

March 15th, 2020

Hi Everyone,

As of this writing we are still open for treatments. We are asking clients that if they have or feel any flu or flu like symptoms, such as a fever, runny nose, sore throat and cough, then to postpone their appointments for at least 2 weeks. This is the approximate incubation window limit for COVID-19 and it will manifest or not over that time period.

We are also asking people who have just travelled from another country or have had flights within Canada to self isolate and consider not coming in for at least 2 weeks. Desmond Fan, our Massage Therapist is self-isolating for 2 weeks as he returns from his Dragon Boat training trip in Florida. We have cancelled his appointments to the end of March.

If you have been in contact with someone who has had COVID-19, then you will need to self-isolate for 2 weeks, even if you do not exhibit any symptoms and we ask that you do not come in until after this time period.

As you know, in most people it will only manifest as mild flu symptoms, however seniors, young children and those with compromised immune systems it can become life threatening, so we are also asking those individuals to take extra precautions and try to minimize exposure to crowded areas.

At the clinic, we are disinfecting the common areas and have hand sanitizer available at the front desk and in each room. We are cleaning tables between each client and we only have a handful of clients in the clinic at any one time. Remember to wash your hands regularly and use the hand sanitizer available before and after your visit to our centre.

If you have any further concerns, feel free to reach out to us for more information or to answer any questions.
