Welcome

Checking in with an update as well as some information & resources I wanted to share with everyone.
 
First off, the biggest news. As of yesterday, the the governor put out a new order changing the date for school to resume from April 6 to "for the duration of the public health emergency." Meaning? I am now closed indefinitely. My guess is that I will be down for a minimum of 8 weeks, however some reports are saying it could stretch well into the summer.

I'm hopeful that as time goes on and our understanding of transmission grows, that there may be a possibility that I re-open before schools do simply based on the small number of clients I see per day vs the large number of people congregating in schools. For the time being, however, that is not an option. I will stay in touch and update everyone as the situation changes, but for now I will be canceling all appointments booked through the first week of May & will continually reassess and update as new information becomes available.

For the first day of spring, this weather is pretty disappointing. I know I can't be the only person who has been counting the days til spring arrives, looking forward to getting outside after the long, dreary winter we have had. Guess we will have to wait a few more days.Until then, if you're ready for a break from social media or you've already gotten caught up on all your shows after a Netflix marathon & don't know what to do next, this website has compiled a great list of free resources. Free classes you can take, books you can read, museums & parks that do virtual tours, concerts, mental health resources and more. Worth bookmarking & coming back to later, if nothing else.

Also important to note, as of right now, there seems to be no plan to delay our primary voting on April 7th. Most people are aware of absentee voting by mail being an option if you do not want to venture out into the crowds. I just read about another option for voting without the crowd and wanted to share that here as well.


I don’t want to vote by mail, but I also don’t want to go out on Election Day in case there are big crowds. Are there other ways to vote?

Yes. You can cast an in-person absentee ballot at your local clerk’s office. Each city, village and town in Wisconsin is responsible for setting the dates and hours of in-person absentee voting for their municipality. To find the dates and hours for in-person absentee voting where you live, check your municipal clerk’s website or call their office.

13 Corona Myths Busted by Science

COVID-19 CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Clients,

After careful consideration of all the information we currently have about the coronavirus and the CDC recommendations to prevent its spread, I have decided to temporarily shut down my practice at least through March, and possibly longer depending on how events develop.  

After watching the 8pm press conference regarding the second case diagnosed in the City of Milwaukee (as well as the rapid escalation of diagnosed cases in the state), I really feel this is the most responsible way to approach the ever-changing situation. I certainly don't want to help this virus spread. I also want to do everything I can to minimize exposure for my elder and/or immune-compromised clients, as well as protect myself and my own family from unnecessary possible exposure. 

I will be back in touch again soon, when I know more about when I can reopen.  For now, I am booking appointments in April but will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary. 

I hope you are well, and stay well!  Let me know if you have any questions.  

All the best,
Amy Courville, LMT
