President's Note: PEP

Although things might be a little different, PEP is still here for you! During this time, many of our classes will be hosted virtually. Please check our website for the most updated information.

Dear Community Members,

S

o many things in our world have changed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. For us, one of the toughest changes has been pausing many of our PEP classes. The safety of our patients and staff always comes first. We sincerely apologize for the disruption, but we need to ensure your health and wellness, as well as reduce risk of community spread.

42 | PEP CATALOG

At the time of printing this catalog, we were still under shelter-in-place orders. This left us unsure of which classes we would be able to offer online or in person from July to December. This being the case, we made the decision to leave off class dates and times to remain as flexible as possible as we transition to a “new normal.� We encourage you to call our office or check the PEP website regularly to learn about our latest class offerings. For the time being, our intention is to offer appropriate classes online. In the coming months, we hope to gradually reintroduce select in-person exercise classes, as we know how important they are for many of you. We are developing detailed criteria for resuming our full inperson class schedule as soon as we

are given approval, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and County of Santa Cruz Public Health Department. As we do within the hospital, we will follow strict infection prevention protocols at every step to ensure your safety.

Thank you for your patience, we hope to see you soon!

Nanette Mickiewicz, MD President/CEO Dominican Hospital
