Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, I will temporarily be closing my office as of 3/16/2020. If you have a session in the next week or two, it is currently canceled for the time being.
As a healthcare professional, I believe it is my duty to do what i can to help" flatten the curve" and " do no harm". Due to the 2-14 day incubation period (longer that the seasonal flu), we may be exposed and contagious long before we display symptoms and thus be spreading it unknowingly.
Since my profession involves being in close proximity and sharing the air for an extended period of time in an enclosed room, a virus like this can be spread very quickly despite precautions.
I do not take this decision lightly but safety is my number one concern for all my clients and their families, some of which are part of at risk populations. With the exponential spread and possibility of overwhelming our health care system if we don't start social distancing sooner than later.
I am hoping this will only be for 2 weeks but I will continue following the recommendations of out state licensing board and the updates from the CDC, OHA as well as WHO. You are welcome to set up new appointments using my online scheduler for a few weeks out, but know that everything is tentative at the moment while this unfolds.
Take care of yourselves. I hope to see you all soon.
