We are open at the bin Wednesdays through Sundays. We have free wifi and wines by the glass to help you work remotely. If you want to replenish your wine stash during this time but want to minimize your time out in public, call or email in your order and choose one of two convenient options: 1. PICK-UP: We will get it boxed up so you can pull your car up in the 3 minute passenger load zone directly in front of the shop and we’ll run your order out to you. Please allow advance notice (1 hour minimum) to give us time to put your order together. 2. DELIVERY: Liz and I are going to assist with getting wine to those that cannot get to the Junction. We will offer limited delivery service on Tuesdays (and Friday when available). There will be a $10 delivery fee to offset gas and time. Considering one pays that much in delivery and add-on fees for meal delivery services, we feel this is reasonable while keeping the fee as low as possible. Deliveries in West Seattle only at a prearranged time. Someone 21 or over must be present at the time of drop-off.

Dr Korn As a healthcare facility, we are taking extra precautions in our office to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our patients: Any employees that are sick are asked to stay home. Any patients with upcoming appointments who call in reporting they are feeling sick, and are unsure if they should come in, are encouraged to reschedule their appointments. Additional cleaning in our front desk and waiting area have been implemented, including setting up hand sanitizer and using disinfectant spray periodically throughout the day. We are also asking patients swish chlorhexidine, a germicidal mouth rinse, when they are chairside before starting any planned procedures.

We are encouraging our parents and students to continue hand washing and good hygiene. Some parents have kept children home that are well because of concern. Our stance is that we don’t encourage keeping your child home if they are well and want to come to school, however parents know their child and family best and should do what they feel is good for their family. We are watching carefully those students that show signs of being sick at school and are being proactive about communicating information to parents and looking at the symptoms presented. Community Acupuncture We clean both clinics every day. We regularly clean doorknobs, handles, handrails and other shared commonly used surfaces with disinfectant spray. We keep a regular laundry schedule and cleaning schedule of our spaces, including the restrooms. We ask now, as we have regularly, that people with the following symptoms stay home and do NOT come into the clinic until 24 hours after these have passed: fever and/or chills, vomiting and/or diarrhea. If you can’t leave your bedroom or your bathroom, that is a message from your body that you need to stay home and rest – no other medicine could be greater. Once you are 24 hours out from having those symptoms, we invite you to come back. We will waive late cancellation fees for anyone canceling due to suspected flu or COVID-19 infection. If you show up at our clinic with a cough related to an upper respiratory infection, we ask you to come wearing a face mask. Only people with coughs need to wear face masks – they are not preventative.
