Reminder of what to do if you are feeling ill

We are asking clients who are feeling ill and/or have potentially been exposed to someone who tested positive to COVID to STAY HOME. Common symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, fever, fatigue, dizziness and brain fog. Below are recommended time frames for self-isolation based on recommendations from the BCCDC, for more information, READ HERE.

If you are ill, please contact us to cancel or reschedule your appointment with adequate notice.

This ensures there is time for another client to fill your spot and to avoid too much disruption to our schedule and it doesn’t impact the revenues of our small business.
