Yes I had to stop all in person physiotherapy (I moved some of my work virtually) but thankfully my wife could return to work and I could turn my energy to caring for our kids.  I know many families were forced to juggle work and kids from home, in some ways the forced simplicity of stopping work was [...]

Reflections on Running

I started running a little more in late 2019 when my knee started hurting and I needed to back off from the squash court. It was fun to be learning something new again but by late winter I was playing more squash again. Things changed of course again in mid March, so my focus returned to running. The experience has given me a greater appreciation for how long it can take to get truly “comfortable” [...]

Physio Dave WorkSafe BC COVID-19 Safety Plan

The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads in several ways. It can spread in droplets when a person coughs or sneezes. It can also spread if you touch a contaminated surface and then touch your face. The risk of person-to-person transmission increases the closer you come to other people, the more time you spend near them, and the more people you come near. The risk of surface transmission increases when many people contact the same surface [...]

At home but open…for some business during Covid-19

Its hard to believe it has been almost been two months since I last worked at the VRC. With so many unknowns during this time our family feels very fortunate. My wife was able to go back to work for the hospitals and I was able to take over most of the weekly childcare. In many ways it has been a blessing, I never would have spent this much time with either of my young [...]
