I am happy that our Governor recognizes that Massage Therapy is vitally important and includes us in Health Care, but does he understand how close we work with our clients and what we even do?  At this point in time I am not sure I would be comfortable working with any client for an hour or more in a closed room.  I don't mean this because I don't like my clients, I mean this because none of us can trust that we are not carriers of this virus.  I would hate to get sick or to unknowingly infect one of my clients.  Working in a hazmat suit does not give a comfortable, "warm and friendly" vibe.  

I have not received any info from ABMPsuch as email or notices of webinars.

In the live event, someone said an email had gone out to ABMP members during the last 30 minutes (this was yesterday). Nothing showed up in my inbox or spam folder. It was also said that there would be a replay link. I haven't received an email for this and can't seem to find it on the website. Please can you post it somewhere it's easy to find?

Has anyone filed for unemployement, that is an individual contractor, and received any?  I am in Michigan. 


For those of us who missed it, can you please point us to where it's available online? I tried to register after the fact and it doesn't allow me to. thanks.
