As many of you know, a few developments in the covid-19 response have an effect on my massage therapy practice. Here are the key components:
An update to the Public Health Order 20-22. This was an amendment to the original restaurant-closing order that now specifically includes “nonessential personal service" businesses, such as massage therapy. The update also extended the closure through April 30th.
The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies added clarification here. DORA is the licensing agent for Massage Therapists in Colorado. They addressed the difference between closing a massage therapy “business” and home visits/practices, and make a clear recommendation to pause practicing either one.
And of course, we now have the state-wide “stay at home” order. This is asking all of us to stay home except for critical activities through April 11th.
TL/DR FINAL TAKEAWAY: My massage therapy services are suspended through April 30th. I would prefer to wait until closer to that date to start rescheduling your April appointments. I would like to have a firm idea of when I will be allowed to resume practice before rescheduling you. I am hoping the restrictions will lift before the 30th but am also prepared for a possible extension. I will email you or contact you directly when I know for sure.
I am so excited to welcome you to my new home office! Remember that when I resume practice, I will be working exclusively from my home office, here is a sneak peek!
