Huge sigh of relief, we can keep calm and carry on!

It has been an emotional couples of months, our first coronavirus pandemic here in the UK  and I trust that you and your families remain in good health.  I have kept in touch with many of you during this time and am looking forward to treating you all again once this is all over and done with.

I am planning to reopen sometime in July, Fingers crossed everything goes to plan!!!   I want to ensure that whilst I am operating, the risk of transmitting the virus is minimal. Until there is a vaccine or covid-19 become extinct, it will not be possible to guarantee anything with certainty.

In order to be successful, I need the assistance from my clients and have therefore implemented some new procedures to limit this risk.

What are the coronavirus guidelines?

Prior to booking any appointments you will need to confirm that you and no members of your household are exhibiting any covid 19 symptoms* or have been within the last 14 days.

If you have been asked to shield by the government you will not be able to book an appointment until more guidance becomes available.

If you develop symptoms* prior to your appointment or within the cancellation period please notify me as we will need to reschedule your appointments for 14 days as a precaution.

All clients will need to complete a client registration form before the start of their treatment this will be sent to you before your appointment.

Both parties will be expected to wash their hands at the start of the appointment.

For nail appointments you have the option to wear your own mask or face covering.  If you do not have one, you have the option to purchase a face shield for your own peace of mind, the cost of the shield (£3) will be added to your treatment. They are reusable and can be used for future appointments.

To limit the potential spread of coronavirus, your therapist will wear a face shield (and/or mask or facial covering) for the duration of your appointment.

You will need to provide your own towels for all treatments and to cover the face hole on the couch for massage. Coverings will be provided for added protection.

I will continue to uphold my high levels of hygiene by continuing to exhibit high standards of serialisation and disinfectant for reusable tools and devices and to continue to use disposable gloves and nail files for each treatment.

To reduce the contamination of surfaces you will be asked to clean your mobile phone with a medical cleaning wipes if you feel that you are unable to refrain from using it during your treatment.

7 days after your treatment you will be contacted via text to check that you or members of your household are not exhibiting any symptoms of covid-19.  If you have been told that you have come in contact with anyone that has a confirmed case of covid-19 please let me know so that I can monitor my symptoms and alert past clients if necessary.

At this time appointments may be cancelled at short notice if I develop any symptoms and may be concerned about my personal health.

Automatic transfer via mobile banking or Paypal is preferable however you do have the option to pay via credit or debit card.  If you need to pay by cash you will be required to put the exact amount into an envelope, no change will be available at this time.

It will take some time adjusting to these new enhanced procedures.  They have been introduced to ensure that we are able to continue to operate as safely as possible until the current situation is resolved.

I look forward to treating you soon, and cannot wait to get back to what I do best.

WHO Identified Covid-19 Symptoms

The most common symptoms of covid-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets covid-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
