Dear Meridian Pilates Clients,
After our initial relief to receive explicit communication from Vancouver Coastal Health last week about allowable 2-person groups, we are sorry to announce that this first message was sent to us in error, which has since been clearly communicated and corrected. We will no longer run any in-studio 2-person group classes, as previously described, until changes occur in this current Provincial Health Order. Private sessions are unaffected, and will continue as currently booked, however we will need to alter any regularly-booked semi-private sessions for clients who do not currently live in the same household. If you are in this category, please reach out to us, and we will discuss options.
Those of you currently enrolled in group classes have been sent an email describing our current options. Anyone else wishing to find out more about our online offerings or what might be possible in-person, within the scope of this current PHO, can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We wish all of you a safe journey through the end of this pandemic. We know that brighter days lie ahead of us, and we will keep the course, both to stay in business as best we can and to ensure the health and safety of all of our staff and clients. The fatigue and dismay we might be feeling about having to pivot again is nothing compared to the very horrific impact unbridled Covid could have on our community, and we are very aware of this fact in all of our current sorting of schedules.
As an aside, and a departure from what we normally communicate within email newsletters, there is a current petition circulating in regards to the standards being used to decide what is safe and what is not in the fitness industry. I am including a link here, for anyone who wishes to read and decide whether it makes sense for them to sign.
