Functional Massage Therapy is tightening their bubble security to maintain a low risk exposure level while still remaining open! Considering the recent cases on the island and within the province, as well as Dr. Henry’s most recent message regarding bubble size and travel, some changes need to happen.
Beginning next week, anyone gathering with more than 6 people from separate bubbles will need to hold off from seeking massage from Functional Massage Therapy for a period of 2 weeks. Also, anyone leaving the Comox Valley, Campbell River region or hosting guests from outside this region will be asked to wait 2 weeks before coming into Functional Massage Therapy. Port Alberni, Cortes, Quadra, Hornby and Denman will be considered part of this travel bubble region due to Leslie’s own personal bubble exposure. For example: You play hockey every week with 10 people on the bench/dressing room. Please don’t request a massage from Leslie until you are willing to take 2 weeks off hockey. OR you just went to Victoria as a tourist to do some shopping and hiking with your own bubble, please wait 2 weeks before booking a massage from Leslie. OR you just went camping with some friends from Nanaimo in Tofino; please wait 2 weeks before coming into Functional Massage Therapy. What is acceptable in the days leading up to your massage? Work in Port Alberni, camping around Campbell River, visiting family on Cortes etc.
I suspect this level of precautions will last until there are no new cases within VIHA for 2 weeks. Until then, please reduce the faces and places you visit. Leslie is committed to staying local for the month of August in order to keep serving your needs in a safe manner!
