  • Screening clients by filling out the questionnaire
  • Laundering staff uniforms at the spa
  • Removing all non-essential decor and amenities i.e. pillows, magazines, snacks(take one from entry and take it home) and utilizing sanitizable menus
  • Assigning lockers to alternate use and placing robes and slippers in lockers after sanitizing
  • Washing Hands at the start and end of a treatment/service and asking our guests to wash hands frequently during their visit
  • Mask usage is dependent on service, provider, and client
  • Disinfecting credit card machines after each use and frequently disinfecting frequented areas touched throughout the spa.
  • Posting reminders throughout the spa to wash hands for 20 seconds
  • Providing hand sanitizer in every room of the spa
