**ATTENTION** There are new procedures that affect those wishing to book massage due to Covid-19.
- Clients must be scheduled by appointment only either online or by phone. No walk-in appointments.
- Practitioners will manage one client at a time per practitioner. Clients should wait in their car until the business alerts them to enter, or until the exact time of their appointment. There will be ample time between appointments for cleaning and disinfection, and to avoid even brief interaction between clients.
- No physical contact with clients that is not necessary to provide services (e.g. no shaking hands or hugging).
- Clients must receive pre-visit telephone consultation within 24 hours prior to their appointment to screen for symptoms of COVID-19, recent travel, or close contact to any person with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 in the prior 14 days. Standard screening questions are outlined above and in the Universal Guidelines; screening must be documented in chart notes. NOTE: Healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients while wearing appropriate personal protective equipment should answer “no” to this question. ***Anyone who books and does not supply the appropriate information 24 hours before their appointment will have their appointment canceled***
- At the time of client presentation, client will sign an informed consent (which can be added to the Health Intake form) about risks of infection. Client should also re-attest that no new symptoms have developed and that no new travel or close contact to a person with COVID-19 has occurred in the interim since the pre-visit telephone screening. NOTE: Healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients while wearing appropriate personal protective equipment should answer “no” to this question
- All clients MUST wear a cloth face covering over the nose and mouth when within the facility. If the client does not have a cloth face covering, the practitioner will provide a mask to the client.. Refer to “business adaptions” below for alternative guideline when client is face down.
- All staff MUST wear a cloth face covering over the nose and mouth at all times when within the facility, even when alone in client service areas (e.g. cleaning and disinfecting after services).
