Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy

 

I have missed being able to offer you the training and treatments that I know you love, and I am looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible.

My priority is to keep you as safe as possible, and prior to re-opening the salon I have implemented a number of changes which I would like to make you aware of.

During the time the salon has been shut, I have completed the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. I have since made a number of changes in the way that we operate that you will notice when you next visit.

 

Booking Appointments

If I or any of our staff feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, they will self-isolate immediately and not come into the salon. This may mean that I have to cancel your appointment at short notice. I appreciate that this may be inconvenient but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled you will be able to re-book again or ask for a full refund / voucher.

 

Visiting the Salon

For your safety and to maintain social distancing, I ask that you wait in your car until your appointment time to avoid coming into contact with other clients.

I have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, toilets door handles etc. are wiped clean using disinfectant products between each client.

All tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers’ instructions for your safety. 

Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally, friendly, single use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use in order to protect you from cross infection.

You will have access to soap and hot water to wash your hands with as soon as you enter the salon and we will also have hand sanitiser available for you to use when you come into the salon.

Please wear a facemask when you visit the salon and during your treatment.

I will use personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment. This will include a full-face visor / disposable gloves / facemasks and / or aprons where appropriate.

 

I can confirm that the laundering of salon towels and uniforms is a priority I can assure you that all salon laundry is washed at 60  C however I will be using disposable towels where possible.

All disposable items are bagged and safely removed from the treatment area between each client.

 

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refreshments other than water which will be available in a disposable cup.


My treatments

We have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments and we are confident that we can continue to provide these safely.

 

During your treatment

I understand the importance of hand hygiene and we will ensure that I wash my hands in according with NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment.

I will try to make your treatment/training as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns about your treatments please let me know and I will do what I can to satisfy you.

 

After the treatment

In order to avoid handling of cash, I would prefer if you could pay for your treatment by card or in advance using bank transfers.

 

All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and mine. We will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary.

 

Please take a minute to answer the following questions; all responses will be kept confidential.

 

  • Have you or anyone in your household had any of the following symptoms in the last 21 days: sore throat, cough, chills, body aches for unknown reasons, shortness of breath for unknown reasons, loss of smell, loss of taste, fever at or greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit?
  • Have you or anyone in your household been tested for COVID-19?
  • Have you or anyone in your household visited or received treatment in a hospital, nursing home, long-term care, or other health care facility in the past 30 days?
  • Have you or anyone in your household cared for an individual who is in quarantine or is a presumptive positive or has tested positive for COVID-19?
  • Do you have any reason to believe you or anyone in your household has been exposed to or acquired COVID-19?
  • To the best of your knowledge have you been in close proximity to any individual who tested positive for COVID-19?

 

If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19 – please advise me as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT / TRAINING.

 

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, however mild, please contact me to rearrange your appointment and stay at home.


Thank you for your understanding.
