Dear Clients and Friends
On March 12 we had one confirmed case of Covid-19 in the state of Maine, as of today, the count is up to 303. Based on Governor Mills’ directive to close down all non-essential services, and school closings, our only decision is to remain closed until further notice to continue slowing the spread of this epidemic and to self-contain.
Some clients have asked whether we are considered essential health care providers, and we’ve struggled with that question. On the one hand, we believe that our services are essential to the well-being of our clients, and our inclination is to offer greater help during this time. On the other hand, because acupuncture isn’t routinely practiced as an emergency medicine, we are not trained in triage and lack both medical grade protective equipment and decontamination tools. There are hard choices to be made when weighing these realities, but ultimately we want to do what’s best for public health.
We are regretful and sad about closing our business, but believe it is the safest and best choice for our staff, all of you, and the community at large. We are committed to doing our part in flattening the curve. We hope you are all maintaining health during these unpredictable times. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU. Feel free to call the office if you would like to contact your provider with questions, concerns, or just to talk! We are also continuing with curbside pickups of supplements and direct mail. Keep in mind that our office staff is working limited hours and are not in the office everyday, but they will back to you within 24/48 hours.
We miss you all and would love to hear your voices. We are here to offer emotional support, advice to boost and support your immune systems, and answer questions about any of your health concerns.
