COVID-19 Changes

UPDATE: We have now been mandated to close until April 30th!

Dear Friends,

I am writing you after careful review of data from the CDC, The North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy, The NC Cosmetic Arts Board, and ABMP. Your safety and that of my staff is my highest priority. Being a nurse and having been in charge of an infection control program for a hospice in the past, I felt the need to be very cautious. We have decided to close the spa until March 31st. Hopefully by then we will have a better handle on this virus.

Here are some things we know that have led me to this point of view:

1. The time between exposure and symptoms can be up to 14 days.

2. The virus is contagious for days before symptoms develop, so your “healthy client” might not be.

3. The virus stays intact on surfaces for several days; it stays intact in the air for several hours (at least).

4. COVID-19 is extremely contagious, and it doesn’t take a lot of exposure to spread from one person to another.

5. The virus appears to be contagious after symptoms subside—but we don’t know how long.

6. At this point, older people and those with impaired immune systems are not necessarily more likely than others to catch the virus, but they are more likely to need extensive medical interventions. (Although that may be changing. In some countries the number of people in hospital care are skewing much younger.)

7. We don’t have enough medical capacity to manage what’s coming—which makes it even more vital not to add to that load in any way.

We will be checking messages periodically, and returning phone calls. If you would like, you can also reach out via email (alossispa@gmail.com) or Facebook messenger.

This was a very difficult choice I had to make as a small business owner. I know we will all rally together and get through this. We are American’s and that is what we do! I am sending prayers for all of you reading this!

Blessings and Wellness to you all,

Dena McDonald
