Important for all guests visiting the day spa
Please wear a mask on entry to the day spa. Although there is still much to learn about the Coronavirus, the WHO suggested protocols for addressing it are identical to those for reducing the spread of the common cold and flu. Therefore, we are focusing on specific measures we can put in place to increase our efforts at virus prevention.
In preparation, we believe it is important to keep our clients aware of our current procedures:
We want our clients to feel at ease and for our staff and clients to remain healthy and safe. Dont be afraid. Fear and stress decrease the immune system, just be wise and take precautions.
The health and well-being of both staff and clients is a top priority, and the best way to help ensure that is to practice great workplace and personal hygiene always—not just during this public health emergency, but always.
In the current situation, please feel assured that we are following all the recommended guidelines...and more ! What an incredible situation for us all to experience. With information changing daily, we are all trying to navigate through life the best we can. An uncertain feel in the air. I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful community around us, connecting with people and seeing how this is affecting them. Everyone is taking a step back and looking at how they live their life, and what changes they would like to implement. This is such a positive thing to reflect on in such a challenging time. We need to keep positive and connected.
