After much deliberation and thought,
We have decided that tomorrow will be our last day for seeing patients,
Until at least April 6th.
We will re-evaluate things at that time.
It has been a difficult decision to make,
As we do not want to abandon those of you who need our care.
But with the nature of our current public health crisis,
The safety of each of you, and our city, country, and world,
Is of utmost importance right now.
We cannot fight this virus unless we all work together.
And it is as clear as day that self-isolation,
Is what is going to make the difference for all of us.
We are very sorry to do this, but we feel this is the right thing to do.
So after tomorrow, we will not be seeing patients – tentatively for the next two weeks.
We will resume when the Public Health people say it is safe to do so.
In the meantime,
If any of you are in dire need for care,
In other words, need emergency treatment,
Or are in an acute state,
Each of us practitioners are willing to come in on a case by case basis.
This means that you can email the clinic, firstname.lastname@example.org
And make a special request.
We will try our best to accommodate.
Finally, although none of us know how long this crisis will go for,
As soon as anything changes, we will inform you.
On the bright side, we are still working on creating our virtual platform.
So we can advise, consult, and help you through video.
So keep your eyes out for that once it is launched.
In the meantime, please stay safe.
Please practice social distancing and self-isolation.
And let’s work together to beat this pandemic.
We will see you soon again.
Yours in health,
