    I think about the time that wellness centres, gyms, fitness centres, etc… have had to be closed for and know that these closures will be detrimental to some of these businesses and the employees who have dedicated their professions to bettering the lives of others. Being a mental health and wellness advocate, I know that these services are desperately needed. They provide people with tools to thrive in life, as well as creating a sense of community that is lacking in so many other areas of life. Relief for these businesses is needed to ensure that these businesses can reopen and continue providing support and positivity to the communities that they serve.

    BOLO has BIG energy but the truth is we’re a small business and everything we’ve worked for over the last 3 years is in jeopardy due to the COVID shutdown. Our staff of 35 people have been let go, our community of thousands has been torn apart and the future of the business itself lies in the wake. We need the government to step in and ensure that we – and other studios like ours – are still here when all this is over. We need relief, not debt and we need it NOW.

    I’m unable to provide my services to my clients which means no support for their wellbeing and no income.

    Our 3 gym locations have had to close due to shut down due to COVID 19. We have a training team who are all without pay right now.
    Dew Sweat House endorsed 2020-04-07 21:22:52 -0400
    As a fledgling business within the health and wellness business, not being able to operate during this time, is putting a heavy load on whether we will be able to keep our doors open when this is over. We need relief and support during this time to try and stay afloat.

    Our physiotherapists are not able to see any patients virtually for fear they will lose their eligibility for CERB.
