"If Omicron were called common sense, there wouldn't be any." A friend posted this little brain teaser meme and it got me thinking about what we need to do to stay safe and healthy at Wise Turtle Acupuncture. With the super contagious nature of the Omicron virus, it is time to increase various precautions.
Starting Monday, January 3, 2022, Wise Turtle Acupuncture is requiring higher masking standards so we protect and respect each other and ourselves. These are the easy-peasy options:
Wear an N95 mask
Wear a double layer cloth mask with a filter or a paper mask underneath it.
Wear two paper masks.
Buff bandanas do not count as masks in any way or in any layer.
All masks must fit snugly and be clean. Nose wires in a mask are good!
I will have paper masks available at the door, in case one is needed.
Please sanitize or wash your hands before coming in to the office.
I am a small practice and keep prices low -- feel free to donate masks and hand sanitizer to your community acupuncture clinic.
Patients will be texted with this information prior to their appointments as a reminder.
I have not been requiring proof of vaccination but am urging patients to please be vaccinated, get your booster now, and I will see you . . . in health!
Karen believes affordable health care is a right and community acupuncture is a perfect way to bring Chinese Medicine to the people.
