Santa Clara County has given the authorization to resume massage therapy services with COVID-19 Safety protocol restrictions. Some of these restrictions include:
--Maintain safe distance where possible.
--No handshakes or hugs. Use of contactless payment if possible.
--Masks: Must be worn at all times, including through the entirety of the treatment. This limits facial massage.
--The massage therapist must wear latex-free disposable gloves ( I already practice this).
--Before the treatment, client must wash hands or use hand sanitizer.
--I will be seeing fewer clients per day and the time between appointments will be considerably lengthened to ensure proper cleaning and sanitation between each treatment as well as overall contact and exposure.
--In addition, as an employee at the Apple Wellness Center, I am taking advantage of the offer to be tested for the COVID-19 virus on a weekly basis. So far I've had one test which was negative. My family and I continue to mostly stay at home and see a very small, select circle of friends and family.
With all this in mind, it cannot be stressed enough that those who are higher-risk, live with those who are at a higher risk, has had any known exposure or exhibit any symptoms of illness should not come in for a treatment.
Thank you for your cooperation and see you soon.
