COVID-19 VIRUS UPDATE (Updated March 28)

Due to the increased severity of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and out of an abundance of caution for our patients’ safety, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Curing Hands.

Our office will be closed beginning today, March 20, until further notice. On March 29, we will reassess the situation and make a decision whether to re-open or extend the closure. Upon guidance of health officials, Curing Hands will remain temporarily closed until the health officials determine there is no longer a significant threat posed to the public.

Once a re-opening date is determined, an update will be posted on this website and we will contact the clients to reschedule appointments that were cancelled due to the closure.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope for your understanding as we all try to act in the community’s best interest during these extraordinary times. We encourage everyone to be safe and follow the guidelines recommended by our health officials and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

COVID-19 VIRUS UPDATE

Due to developments of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Curing Hands is taking measures to reduce the risk of exposure.


If you, or a family member, have:

  • travelled outside of Canada, OR
  • have been in contact with a person at risk, OR
  • have developed symptoms (see below) of novel coronavirus infection

… THEN WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE YOU IN OUR OFFICE UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN SYMPTOM-FREE FOR 14 DAYS FOLLOWING YOUR RETURN HOME.

For those affected, please contact our office to reschedule your appointment.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, this measure is being taken in order to ensure the health and safety of all of our patients and to prevent the spread of the virus.
Your understanding & cooperation is imperative.

Symptoms range from common to severe respiratory illnesses and include:

  • fever
  • cough
  • difficulty breathing
  • pneumonia

There are no specific treatments for coronaviruses, and there is no vaccine that protects against coronaviruses. Most people with common human coronavirus illness will recover on their own.

Human coronaviruses typically spread from an infected person to others via:

  • the air by coughing and sneezing
  • close personal contact such as touching or shaking hands
  • touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before you wash your hands
