COVID POLICY & PROCEDURES
27/2/22 - Please note that this policy has been updated following advice from the UK Government Test & Trace Department. Test and Trace info is no longer required to be collected, nor will you have to scan the QR code on arrival. The wearing of face masks is down to personal preference.
My priority is to keep you as safe as possible. I have taken every advisable and mandated safety precaution outlined by the Government. In addition to these protocols, I have completed the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course, accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. I have several procedures in place, which you will find below.
COVID Vaccination & Testing
I have had both doses (and a booster) of the COVID vaccination.
If I feel ill, have symptoms of COVlD-19 or have a positive COVID test result, I will self-isolate immediately and discontinue operation. This may mean that I have to cancel your appointment at short notice. I appreciate that this may be inconvenient, but it is done entirely for your safety. If your appointment is cancelled, you will be able to re-book again as and when appropriate.
If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of COVlD-19 – please advise me as soon as possible and DO NOT COME FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT.
Arriving for your massage
I have increased the cleaning frequency, including ensuring that common surfaces, toilets, door handles, etc., are wiped clean using industry-specific disinfectant products between each client.
Wherever possible, I will utilise environmentally friendly, single-use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use to protect you from cross-infection, i.e. Couch Roll & disposable hand towels for the client’s use in the bathroom.
You will have access to soap and hot water to wash your hands with as soon as you arrive, and a hand sanitiser is also available for you.
I can confirm that the laundering of towels and clothing when worn is a priority, and I can assure you that all laundry is washed at 60 degrees.
All disposable items are bagged, safely removed from the treatment area between each client and disposed of accordingly.
I have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments, and I am confident that I can continue to provide these safely with minimal impact to your relaxing massage. With the inclusion of all of the above procedures, all available avenues have been covered.
During your treatment
I understand the importance of hand hygiene, and we will ensure that I wash my hands following NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment.
I will try to make your treatment as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns about your treatments, please let me know, and I will do what I can to satisfy any additional concerns you have.
After the treatment
I fully understand that most clients prefer to pay cash, so please do not let this deter you from booking. If you are paying by cash, I do ask that you have the correct amount with you. That said, you can also pay for your treatment by all major debit and credit cards, PayPal, Apple & Google pay.
All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and mine. I will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practices and amend them as necessary.
I appreciate your understanding.
