Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy 

 

For 

Aquarius Therapies 

 

All of us have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

 

I have missed being able to offer you the treatments that I know you love, and 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 my cabin, I have implemented a number of changes which I would like to make you aware of.

 

During the time the cabin 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 I operate that you will notice during your visit. 

 

Booking Appointments 

 

If I feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, I will self-isolate immediately and not open the cabin. 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. 

 

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

 

Visiting the Salon 

 

For your safety and to maintain social distancing, I ask that you attend your appointments as close to the appointment time as possible. Please do not turn up more than 10 minutes early for appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving. 

 

I have increased the frequency of cleaning in the cabin, 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 well as hand gel, as soon as you enter the salon. 

 

I will understand and not be offended if you wish to wear a facemask or wear disposable gloves when you visit the salon and during your treatment if this is appropriate.

Please don’t be surprised or upset if I use personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment. This may include disposable gloves and/or face mask where appropriate. 

 

I can confirm that the laundering of towels and uniforms is a priority, so I assure you that all cabin laundry is washed at 60 degrees C 

 

All disposable items are bagged and safely removed from the cabin between clients. 

 

My treatments 

 

I have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments and I am confident that I can continue to provide these safely. 

 

During your treatment 

 

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

 

I will try to make your treatment 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 ensure your comfort . 

 

After the treatment 

 

In order to avoid handling of cash, you can pay for your treatment by card or via bank transfer. 

 

All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and my safety also.

I will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary. 

 

Thanks you for your understanding.
