COVID SAFE PLAN / ILLNESS POLICY
UPDATED POLICIES EXCEEDING DHHS REQUIREMENTS FOR COVID SAFE PLANS.
While we have always had salon policies in place with coming to your appointment while sick or recently been sick.
We feel it needed to be urgently updated due to the increasing number of cases of illness both within Australia and globally at the moment.
We work in very close proximity to your face and the likely-hood of us catching it from you is very high!
Things like gastro or a simple cold can be contagious for up-to 2 weeks post last symptom.
Our salon runs at full capacity and it is much easier rescheduling 1 or 2 clients than an entire 2 weeks if we get sick.
In accordance with DHHS requirements you must wear a DHHS approved mask during the entire time you are in our salon. You must be wearing it properly and ensure your nose and mouth are covered completely. If you are getting any lash treatments you must also have a nose wire within the mask to avoid any issues with the treatment. (As breath can escape up and cause humidity issues for faster processing/drying times)
We will also need to put extra sensitive tape on around the top of the mask to the skin to ensure no breathe is coming out affecting treatments. If you are sensitive to tape please avoid booking these treatments in.
The following treatments will not be able to be booked during this time.
-Sides of face Waxing
-Under Chin Waxing
-Face Spray Tans
As a salon we have a duty of care to our clients in order to keep you all as safe as possible this is why
You must maintain social distancing when in the salon - stay 1.5m away from anyone within the salon (Excluding therapist within the treatment area)
Pay on card, or after-pay – We will no longer be accepting cash payments.
We will be a book online only salon at this stage to minimise the amount of face-to-face time within the salon per client. (We highly suggest booking online as soon as possible to avoid missing your appointment spot. Bookings will be able to be done 3 weeks in advance).
You must come to your appointment on time and alone. No children can come due to the small are we work in and we must allow 4sqm per person to be compliant in opening with a covid safe plan.
We will be doing extended cleaning between every client on areas in our treatment area.
Like always as much as possible is single use and in line with DHHS we wash everything that is not single use in hot soapy hospital grade disinfectant and soak in a 70% isopropyl alcohol for at least 10 minutes to disinfect our tools.
All surfaces within the treatment area including but not limited to beds, trolleys, tables, door handles, lights, stools will be wiped down with hospital grade disinfectant and isopropyl alcohol between every client.
Therapist will be wearing mask and gloves for every client
Therapist washing my hands before and after each client.
Surfaces in the waiting area and bathroom area will be cleaned multiple times throughout the day.
