Infinity passed away

Dear friends, 

it is sad time for SPIRIT as we lost an old but wise and noble mare Infinity today. 
This morning she came into the stall but refused to eat. 
Short breath indicated that her heart is giving up. 
She was pain free until the end, laid and passed away peacefully..

At SPIRIT, the health and well-being of our participants, volunteers, and community is our top priority. During this time of uneasiness as COVID-19 impacts our daily lives, we want to assure you that we remain committed to providing the high-quality and compassionate care you have come to expect from us. 
SPIRIT has created a detailed, comprehensive plan that is staged in three phases with each phase reducing restrictions. SPIRIT will enter each phase of the plan only after Northern Virginia as a region enters its own corresponding reopening phases and as SPIRIT is prepared. 
At this time SPIRIT DOES NOT have a reopening date.
The plan covers the new policies and procedures that staff, volunteers and clients will follow regarding limiting the number of people on property, social distancing, reducing touch points, facemask requirements, cleaning and sanitizing schedules and more. The plan was compiled taking into account CDC recommendation, state restrictions and equestrian activity specific precautions and safety procedures. The plan will be reviewed by legal and medical professionals to be sure SPIRIT has taken all perspectives into consideration. 
SPIRIT also knows that information and recommendations for COVID-19 are ever-changing and is prepared to keep up to date on new, relevant information from reliable resources to be able to change and update the plan as needed.
