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.
