May 21st, 2020
As you all are aware, Advanced Laser Clinic has been closed since March 16th, 2020. Taking an early stand against the spread of COVID-19 was essential to assist our community from the spread of this virus. As of April 1st, 2020, Governor Inslee ordered a mandatory non-essential business closure for some time (that we now know) needed to be extended to curve the spread.
Coming into May 2020, we were aware of the Governor's plan to re-open the State in a phased-in approach. Since our business falls under Phase 2 Category, we are planning for an estimated date of re-opening on June 2nd, 2020. Of course, this date may change and is provided as an estimated from the start of Phase 1.
We can't wait to re-open and are patiently waiting the day and news for when Phase 2 will begin. If you would like up to date information we are provided about our status, follow us on Instagram (@advancedlaseroftacoma) or Facebook for all our business updates!
