We take pride in providing a safe place of warmth, comfort, and professionalism in our business, which is especially important during difficult times. This doesn’t just mean taking care of our patients and customers – it starts with taking care of our team, so that they can best serve you.
We’ve always held ourselves to the highest standards of cleanliness, and we have established protocols and best practices in place.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are redoubling our focus on all measures that prevent the spread of illness. We have a longstanding policy of paid sick leave for all employees and always encourage our team to stay home if they experience any symptoms of illness.
We are increasing the frequency of routine cleaning on touched surfaces (countertops, doorknobs, equipment, etc.).
These are extraordinary times and the situation continues to evolve, and so we are prepared to take further steps as needed to protect our team, our patients and customers, and our community. We will continue to follow the guidance provided by the World Health Organization, CDC, and Minnesota Department of Health.
In the meantime, we’re here for you and we are grateful as always for your support. Thank you and please take good care of yourselves, and each other.

Today, Sunday the 15th of March 2020, from the Mayo Clinic :
Prepare, prevent, and don’t panic about COVID-19.
Simple ways to protect yourself:
Keep your hands clean. Wash them with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Clean and disinfect high- touch surfaces immediately.
Practice ‘respiratory etiquette’ by coughing, sneezing into your elbow or a tissue, and then wash your hands again.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home if you are sick.
COVID-19 infection may appear 2-14 days after exposure and can include:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
If you have symptoms CALL your local health care provider or hospital, and ask how best to be evaluated.
DO NOT GO to your health care provider or hospital without calling first.
