Clients hands are sanitized upon entering the door. And their belongings only placed on the two areas I specify for disinfectant purposes. Clients are required to wear their masks everywhere except when on the massage table, for which they are instructed to place the mask on top of their belongings only. After every appointment/client, massage table surfaces and other applicable surfaces are sanitized and wiped clean as needed. This includes any area the clients touch or breathe on. Clients may be provided a disposable mask for $1 if they forget their own.
Additional notes on my precautions and preparedness:
• I have plenty of masks, gloves, sanitizer, wipes, disinfectant and bleach to last without restocking through the end of June! • Please bring your own mask, or I can provide one for you.
• I am not seeing any clients who've experienced symptoms or those in healthcare seeing/helping COVID-19 patients (until sometime in June). I have also kept distance from friends and family until after lock-down quarantine is finished. As additional precaution, Rebel is kept up during appointments per client request.
*The last statistic a few days ago for Harris county has been .002% of the population has contracted the virus..
• Anytime I leave my home for groceries, food, supplies and gas, I wear a mask and use sanitizer or gloves frequently. I keep my keys, wallet, phone and other devices and surfaces cleaned regularly.
Regarding the social/media hysteria of the "CoronaVirus" = Rebel's MT health/hygiene & sanitary practices...
I wanted let everyone specifically know what my actual regular and enhanced hygeine & sanitary practices are:
Regular practices include:
*Clean sheets & towels (stored (quarantined) in clean sanitized container)- washed in warm & hot water with generous amount of hypoallergenic detergent and bleach. *Massage fleece pad (under sheet) is laundered weekly. *Carpet areas vacuumed with anti-bacterial/deodorizer 3X weekly. *Floors are sprayed with disinfectant and mopped daily. *Rebel is bathed weekly, and kept in other room during appointments - per client's request. *On work days, I shower and wear fresh pair of clothing at least twice daily. *Washing my hands & forearms thuroughly before and after each client.
*Disinfecting every possible object/surface clients hands & body would come into contact with before or after each day. This includes: pens used for intake forms, stairwell hand rails, water bottles, bathroom and front-door door knobs, bathroom sink facet knobs, toilet, paper towel rolls, chair, sofa, blanket, massage table, pad & accessories. *AC ventilation is disinfected 1-2 times weekly.
Additional enhanced practices (during suspected or known outbreaks) include:
*Disinfecting every possible object/surface clients hands & body would come into contact with after/before each client. This includes: pens used for intake forms, stairwell hand rails, client water bottles, bathroom and front-door door knobs, bathroom sink facet knobs, toilet paper towel rolls, chair, sofa and massage table, pad & accessories. *AC ventilation is disinfected daily. *Client's are not seen if I am even slightly approaching a fever; and if I get a sick fever (contagious), clients are not seen until my fever has been gone for at least 24hrs. *Clients may request that I wear a regular or N95 respiratory mask during their visit for added precaution, if desired.
Notices: *A different more human and environmentally safe type of antibacterial & disinfectant (made by Seventh Generation) is used for AC ventilation and surfaces that people's body or hands would come into contact with. *In addition to my regular and enhanced practices mentioned, I keep the whole area regulary cleaned and organized as necessary. *I have not contracted the Corona Virus, nor have I received any reports from clients seen that they have contracted the virus.
