March 23, 2020
Quick Wok is closed at this time. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause to anyone affected and appreciate your understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times. Based on what we know today, our intent is to reopen in early May 2020.
We extend our deep appreciation to the medical, emergency, food, gas, transportation and other essential service personnel who are everyday heros. We also honor all the folks in our community who are organizing to sew medical masks and finding so many ways to serve within our new constraints (that include social distancing, hand washing with soap for at least 20 seconds and other critical ways to thwart uncontrolled spread of Covid-19 aka flattening the curve). And we honor each of our journeys individually and collectively—families, schools, businesses and communities—as we contribute in the ways we are each able and called to during our lifetimes sharing this precious planet.
We also wanted to post a few resources on this page:
Quick Wok Gift Certificate Buy Back until April 30, 2020
We acknowledge the financial struggles that are part of these unexpected times. Quick Wok will buy back any fully or partially unused Quick Wok Gift Certificates so you have the cash if you need it.
Please contact us via Facebook messenger or our Contact us page. If you have PayPal or Venmo please let us know. We will contact you to send us photos of both the back and front sides of your Quick Wok Gift Certificate.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back when we reopen and we will resume Quick Wok Gift Certificate sales at that time.
For anyone with special needs
We've had the privilege of participating in thousands of health and wellness conversations over the years at Quick Wok and wanted to mention that if you or your loved ones are at higher risk (over 60, immune-compromised, pregnant, diabetic, and such) there are special reserved senior shopping hours that some grocery stores offer. Please note that the grocery stores may have recently decreased hours.
Creatively maintaining our health
We wish everyone health and that we might each discover what best supports our body, mind, heart and spirit to feel nourished and resilient as we traverse this time.
We also acknowledge the many hardships and anxieties faced on many levels (financial, personal, professional, health to name a few).
We will all be on the other side of this someday. Big crises sometimes evoke epic outpourings of millions of acts of kindness, connection, giving and receiving support each sparkling for a moment like a little jewel woven into the tapestry of these times—shining testaments to the best of our human spirit.
Everything we do before a pandemic will seem alarmist. Everything we do after will seem inadequate.
This is the dilemma we face, but it should not stop us from doing what we can to prepare.
We need to reach out to everyone with words that inform, but not inflame.
We need to encourage everyone to prepare, but not panic.— Michael Leavitt, Former Secretary of Health and Human Services
Why does handwashing with soap for at least 20 seconds destroy viruses?
