BLOOM HAS REOPENED…

BLOOM HAS REOPENED. READ ON BELOW TO LEARN ABOUT NEW PROTOCOLS & REQUIREMENTS & WHY THEY ARE SO IMPORTANT…

I am excited to announce that BLOOM will be opening on Tuesday July 21, 2020.

Yesterday I sent out a survey to all clients {who’s email addresses I have} to see how comfortable we are with resuming skincare treatments. Thank you to all who responded, I was glad to learn how people are feeling. Naturally, there was no wrong answer, but there were enough ‘Very Comfortable’ & ‘Somewhat Comfortable’ responses to motivate me to open.

Before I go into the new protocols & requirements I need to reiterate how important they are & why.

I have a pre-existing heart condition, Mitral Valve Prolapse. I’ve known about it since I was 12 years old. It doesn’t bother me usually in the day to day, but if I was to contract COVID-19 I would be at higher risk of possible complications &/or hospitalization.

I need to ask that when you are answering the COVID Screening Questionnaire you are absolutely honest & mindful of your possible exposure. In the event that you do learn of a possible chain of contact, please let me know as soon as possible. You can rest assured I will let you know if I do.

So you know, I do go out to the grocery store once a week & have been to one restaurant, always wearing a mask. Otherwise, I am home.

As you know I have been very cautious about reopening, but COVID is not going away anytime soon. We have to find safe, respectful ways of carrying on. {I may just lose my marbles if we don’t.} I am confident that my hygiene practices & the following protocols will keep us ALL safe…

  1. I am going to close online booking so that I can properly manage my time to accommodate extra sanitation & cleaning. Please message or email to set up appointments.
  2. Please fill out the COVID Screening Questionnaire the morning of your treatment. I will text it to you. If any concerns arise from this questionnaire we will reschedule your appointment to 14 days ahead. If you have ventured out of state or been in contact with someone suspected or confirmed of having COVID please schedule at least 14 days later.
  3. Please text me when you arrive & I will come out to meet you in the parking lot. Please bring in only essential items. Payments can be made using a card on file, Venmo or Paypal. You may also read out your credit/debit card details.
  4. Your temperature will be taken before entering the building using a contactless thermometer, which will be sanitized between clients. If your temperature is 100*F or higher we will reschedule.
  5. Please wear a mask at all times, until asked to remove to begin your treatment, if it is necessary.
  6. We will both wash our hands thoroughly or use hand sanitizer when you arrive & before you leave. I will wash my hands before changing into new gloves, throughout your treatment.
  7. I will wear a fresh mask, gloves & sanitized protective eye ware during all treatments. New gloves will be changed into as needed during your treatment.
  8. Disposable masks can be placed over nose & mouth during steps that require products to stay on the skin for any length of time {exfoliants, masks}.
  9. Treatments where masks can be worn by clients are unlimited.
  10. Peels will not be offered during this time. Heat under masks can intensify peel action & lead to adverse effects. {Being Summer, peels are not recommended right now anyway.}
  11. Hand massages will not be offered during this time. Foot massages will be.
  12. Products to be used will be decanted at the beginning of your treatment to avoid touching containers during your treatment.
  13. Hot towels will be prepared directly before you arrive & the towel warmer will be sanitized between clients.
  14. As usual, sponges used during treatment will be single use & disposed of after your treatment. {You can still choose to take them home.}
  15. Bedding will be kept to a minimum. No blankets will be offered. As usual, all bedding will be changed between clients. Bedding will be laundered to State Board regulations.
  16. As usual, all implements & equipment will be cleaned & sanitized to State Board regulations.
  17. An Air purifier will be running in the room to keep the air circulating. Thieves essential oil blend will be diffused continuously to clean the air.
  18. All surfaces, especially frequently touched, will be sanitized & the floors will be mopped between clients.

As always, if you have any questions, ideas or comments feel free to email or text me anytime.

See you soon, if you’re comfortable.
