COVID is still around, friends, with a particularly resistant variant here in the northeast. I have had quite a few clients have to cancel due to COVID, flu, or RSV, or other general malaise

I am still using a mask for your whole session. All the massage equipment and room surfaces are wiped down with hospital-grade disinfectant after each appointment. A fan and air purifier are running in the massage room all day. I received the most recent COVID booster and a flu shot on October 26th.

Masks and all CDC recommended vaccines/boosters are still required until COVID is no longer pandemic. (This is typically decided by the WHO). Please let me know when you’ve had the most recent vaccine booster. I do have disposable masks available if you forget yours. You can take them off while face down, if you prefer. Please consider masking in public the few days before your appointment if you don’t already.

The CDC recommends that people ages 5 years and older receive one updated (bivalent) booster if it has been at least 2 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose, whether that was:

  • Their final primary series dose, or
  • An original (monovalent) booster
  • People who have gotten more than one original (monovalent) booster are also recommended to get an updated (bivalent) booster.

If you’ve been exposed to COVID or have had COVID within the last two weeks, please take a home test the morning of your appointment. If you still have symptoms, please reschedule. I understand there is often a lingering bit of cough with COVID and that’s okay.

As usual, if you’re not feeling well for any reason, please don’t come in. There are no penalties for same-day cancellations if you’re sick, though 24 hours or more is greatly appreciated. Please wait until the symptoms have been gone for at least 5 days before rescheduling. If I am not feeling well, I will reach out to you as soon as possible before your appointment.

Thank you for your continued patience.

Stay well,
