“First, do no harm”

 

I hope everyone had a happy, healthy and safe holiday season in this most challenging of years.

It has become apparent that we are now heading into the most dangerous days of this pandemic cycle.  Although we had a good deal of relief from new Covid 19 cases this fall, the predictions of a winter/holiday season surge have come to pass. 

I have decided that for the protection of our Cactus Flower family as well as our office staff and our families we will once again be temporarily closing our office until the surge has passed. Rest assured that we have been meticulously following safety guidelines in our office for proper PPE use, disinfecting and personal distancing and no Covid cases have been reported out of our offices.  

With Arizona averaging over 7000 new positive cases per day since mid-December 7% of everyone in the state has already tested positive. Our hospital beds are currently at capacity, expected to overflow. For the last 2 weeks the Diagnostic Test Positivity Rate has been 20% to 25%.  That means that when you are out and about, as many as one of every four people you encounter could be carrying the virus. And since half of people with Covid will experience no symptoms, there is an ever greater chance that a Covid Positive person will come into our offices. In the event that should happen we would be required to immediately close our doors and quarantine for two weeks. In my mind the dangers are not worth the risk.

Rest assured that when this surge is past we will once again open our doors for your much needed Chiropractic care.  

If you have an appointment on the books after the New Year, we will let you know when we plan to reopen as soon as a date becomes apparent, and you will be rescheduled.

I am as sorry about this as you are…

In the meanwhile, stay safe
