Temporary Suspension of Tai Chi Classes

With a heavy heart, I’ve decided to temporarily cancel all tai chi classes until the beginning of term 2 as part of the effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19. As we get closer to the end of April I’ll be re-evaluating, depending on the status of the virus, but I think this will be longer lasting, with the upcoming flu season. Then I’ll continue to re-evaluate on a week-by-week basis.

I know that most of  you would like me to keep classes going but many of you are in high-risk groups. Apparently, one in four people being diagnosed don’t even fit the testing criteria, and now that we know that people have been diagnosed with the virus without any symptoms at all, I believe that I have a Duty of Care to do what I can to minimise community spread. 

As far as I know, I haven’t been in contact with anyone with Covid-19, but that’s not the point. At this stage, the best way we can take care of each other is to act as if we may already have the disease, not as though we don’t want to catch it.

Please do continue to practice. Perhaps you can get together outdoors in small groups (keeping one and a half metres apart, of course) and continue to strengthen your immune system with tai chi. Give me a call if you’d like me to practice with you now and then, or just to keep in touch and keep me updated. And don’t forget to contact me if you have any questions.
