THE RETURN TO WORK IS TAKING SHAPE
We have all been met with the most challenging of times and now circumstances are evolving into a new world for all of us. Between 48% and 78% of people in the community are asymptomatic if they have the virus, hence the PM is not yet letting close contact services go back to work.
As ever at Appleonia we continue to maintain professional protocols as well as high hygiene and sterilisation standards. In addition, these are some of the changes that will be in place once we become customer facing again.
These measures have been taken to ensure all our safety so please abide by what is asked of you when visiting the salon.
DO NOT visit the salon if you feel unwell or if you or anyone in your household have, or have had any of the known Covid symptoms in the last 14 days. These include, sore throat, dry cough, fever, lasting headaches, loss of taste and or smell, high temperature or diarrhoea.
Only one person will be allowed into the salon at a time, we ask you to please visit alone. Seating will be provided outside for you to sit and wait. Please do not enter the salon until you are invited in.
We ask you to bring very little in with you, only your purse and phone or a very small bag. Please leave coats in the car where possible.
You will be asked to use hand sanitiser when entering the salon which is positioned just inside the door. Wearing a face covering of any kind is acceptable - we will be too. Your temperature may also be checked on arrival.
If removing clothes for your treatment you will be asked to put them in one place, an area cleaned thoroughly between each use.
There will be a level of PPE that we as staff will be required to wear. This may be inclusive of gloves, masks, visors or eye coverings. Special uniform and couch covering changes will also be made.
The environment will be disinfected between each customer use. Time will be allowed for this between each appointment booked. Please understand and appreciate this giving me opportunity to make sure we stay safe.
In reception there is now a sneeze screen at the desk that you will need to remain behind. This protection is in place for the safety of whoever’s behind it. That includes you!
Sadly these new measures come at a cost so during this period of uncertainty there will be a £2 surcharge on each booking (not treatment) to ensure the safety of us all.
We are planning to open the diary soon with start dates. Please keep your eyes peeled for an email containing that information and watch your WhatsApp in case I message you there on this number 07449 773297.
We have dearly missed you all and look forward to having you back. We can’t wait to hear all your stories of Lockdown and of the new world we are living in. These measures we are putting in place I hope to be temporary – but we still don’t know for how long. Please be understanding when you visit the business. This is a new world for us all.
