COVID-19 NOTICE TO CLIENTS FOR REOPENING

Hello my wonderful clients I hope you’re all well and staying safe during this crazy time.

The last couple of months have been a very trying time for us all, hopefully we will see the back of Covid 19 sooner rather than later.  I wanted to let you all know my practice is tentatively scheduled to reopen Wednesday 3rd June.

Please read below for updated guidelines for practice with Covid 19 from the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) along with infection control recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Both the client and myself must wear a mask for the duration of session and on entering and leaving Sola - if it’s too uncomfortable in the face cradle I will drape a pillowcase instead while laying face down.  Mask will be worn when laying face up. If you forget your mask I have some disposable ones.

Temperature check - I will be checking your temperature on arrival using a no touch infrared thermometer,  if your temperature is high I will kindly ask you to reschedule at a later date. If you can, check your temperature on the morning of your appointment, if it’s high please contact me as soon as possible so I can reschedule you.

Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer on entering and leaving my suite.

The CDC suggests that COVID-19 infected respiratory droplets can be dispersed when talking so conversation/speaking will be kept to an absolute minimum (use the time to totally relax and enjoy your massage, you deserve it).

Facial massage is prohibited at this time.

To keep touching surfaces to a minimum feel free to use contactless payment methods such as PayPal (paypal.me/janjan605), Venmo (@Jannette-Lovan), or check made payable to my name or A British Touch Massage Therapy.  I will still take card payments if other methods are not available (I have alcohol wipes).

There will be 30 minutes between appointment times instead of 15 to allow for extended cleaning and sanitation.

Arrive 5 minutes before your appointment so you are immediately able to enter into my suite.  There will be no waiting in the hallways, please wait in your car and text me when you arrive I will come and get you.

If you’re sick please cancel your appointment at your earliest convenience.  I mean any sickness not just COVID 19, It’s the same rule for me also,  if I’m sick I’ll notify you.

In complying with contact tracing efforts please understand that your name and contact information might be shared with the state Health Department in the event that a client or myself at my facility tests positive for COVID-19.  Contact details will only be shared in the event they are relevant based on suspected exposure date, and only for appropriate follow up by the health department. (Hoping I never need to do this). 

Please understand that close contact with people for a time increases the risk of infection from COVID-19. It is impossible for me to follow the social distancing rule during a massage session so it must be your own decision when scheduling an appointment. 

Knowing this information and the risks involved I will ask you to sign an informed consent to receive massage from me.

JUST A REMINDER: The CDC indicates that these underlying conditions place individuals at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19:

People 65 years or older,

Chronic Lung Disease,

Moderate to severe asthma,

Heart conditions,

Compromised or suppressed immunity,

Severe Obesity,

Diabetes,

Chronic kidney disease,

Liver disease.

 

This is my commitment to your health and safety.

I look forward to seeing you all again soon and am happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps I’m taking to keep you and every client safe in my practice.

Thank you for being my client. I value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back to a safe environment.
