Dear clients of Natural Path Wellness,
Out of an abundance of caution and care for our clients and community we have made the difficult decision to close the clinic for a period of time in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.
We will close initially for a 2 week period (until the week of March the 30th), and then reassess the situation the weekend prior to the 30th to make any further decisions to maintain the closure. We will contact each client personally if we continue to stay closed. Please continue to book your appointments in the future by calling or emailing us, our answering service is still taking calls and we can still book clients remotely.
This decision was made as a group, by each of your caregivers here.
We truly feel that if we support our community in getting ahead of this pandemic now we can, as a community, save lives.
We do not make this decision lightly or out of panic, this decision is based on sound advice from our government and national and international health organizations warnings to take this pandemic seriously.
It is now very clear that many people will not know if they are infected until after they have potentially infected others.
The vast majority of those infected will experience only mild symptoms but a smaller, and no less important, sector of our communities will become gravely ill. The most important thing now is to protect the most vulnerable by “flattening the curve” and not adding to our already strapped medical system.
We thank you for the loyalty you have shown us and the kind and concerned words of support many of you have given us, this is an incredible time of hardship for some but also a wonderful time of solidarity and support. Please take that to heart and show your neighbors the same support and kindness!
In the meantime, look after yourselves and continue with your own self-care at home. Do your stretches, practice mindfulness and breathing. Find a free meditation or yoga class on line. Go for a walk outside in the fresh air!
Follow us on Facebook or Instagram where we will try to give frequent updates and also links to other self-care options.
In the words of Dr. Dan Suan, clinical immunologist and researcher in Australia,
“Social isolation is not an act of fear – it is an act of love”.
Yours in health,
Bronwen, Paulette, Lisa G., Mhairi, Shannon, Lisa A., Nicole and Laura
