We’re aiming to keep both you and us as safe as possible, and to do that we need to work together. We’re making some changes, but many of these are behind the scenes. Still, we wanted to tell you all about it in some detail, so you can be reassured.
What we did:
First, we carried out a risk assessment. We’ll keep updating this as guidance changes. For each risk we identified, we tried to find ways to reduce or remove that risk while continuing to keep your experience as effective, relaxing and enjoyable as before.
Throughout, we’ve been guided by government Health and Safety coronavirus guidelines for beauty salons.
Three big changes we’ve done are:
Your experience at A Touch of Spa
How you can help:
If you are unwell in any way, even if you think it is just a slight flu, please let us know and we will rearrange your appointment.
This includes if· you have had the recent onset of a new continuous cough and/or· have a high temperature and/or· noticed a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell.
You will be escorted out.
There is a gap between clients, so you should not come into contact with anyone else. This will help to protect you.
Please leave the premises promptly.
Appointments will not be allowed to overrun. This will help to protect the next client.
Please be reassured that all equipment and linen used or touched during your appointment by either you or the beautician will be disinfected or washed after every client.
The salon and the furniture will be cleaned after every client.
And cleaned again at the end of the day.
A weekly deeper clean will be carried out.
Dr Susan will take Covid tests regularly each week.
The government has asked us to keep a list of clients, and if needed to provide information on individuals to the authorities – particularly for the NHS tracing system.
We are also required to do our best to do all we can to keep you, and us safe.
So we will ask you to complete a consent form to enable these to happen.
If someone reports infection or the possibility of infection with coronavirus within 2 weeks of your visit, you will be informed, and the appropriate services will also be informed so tracing contacts can be facilitated, for example.
If you start to display symptoms of coronavirus, regardless of whether you test positive or not, please let us know promptly.
