The world has shifted and we have all collectively changed how we live. For us, these safety procedures will change how we run yoga classes and clinic bookings. We are certain that we can all work together to continue to offer a sanctuary space within our community.
Currently the spread of COVID-19 is believed to be attributed mostly by droplet contact when we are in close range to each other. Read below for a clarification of droplet contact versus airborne transmission from the BC Centre for disease control. The protocols we have put in place are keeping these ways of transmission in mind, while heavily preventing droplet contact. To read more about how COVID spreads click the link below.
Droplet Contact: Some diseases can be transferred by infected droplets contacting surfaces of the eye, nose, or mouth. For example, large droplets that may be visible to the naked eye are generated when a person sneezes or coughs. These droplets typically spread only one to two metres and quickly fall to the ground. Influenza and SARS are two examples of diseases capable of being transmitted from droplet contact. Currently, health experts believe that coronavirus can also be transmitted in this way.
Airborne transmission: This occurs when much smaller evaporated droplets or dust particles containing the microorganism float in the air for long periods of time. Transmission occurs when others breathe the microorganism into their throat or lungs. Examples of diseases capable of airborne transmission include measles, chickenpox and tuberculosis. Currently, health experts believe that coronavirus cannot be transmitted through airborne transmission.
British Columbia has done an amazing job at slowing the spread of COVID-19. As a business in this province, we have taken care to educate ourselves about how to keep the community as safe as possible, with the information we know about the Coronavirus. Thank you for your business. Let’s keep up the good work!
