Do I need to wear a mask? Yes, all clients are still required to wear a mask while inside the building. I take many disabled and immunocompromised clients as well as clients who work in healthcare. In addition, several members of my family are immunocompromised. For their sakes, I ask that my clients respect this policy even as mandates continue to lift. You will be able to take your mask off while you lay face down.
Are you fully vaccinated? Yes, I received my booster (3rd shot) on November 1st, 2021. I will continue to receive vaccinations as they are recommended/available.
What safety measures are you taking? An incomplete list of Emerald Spring Safety Measures is as follows:
Clients are spaced a minimum of 20 minutes apart (usually 30).
Hospital-grade disinfectant is used on all equipment and high-touch surfaces between sessions.
Floors are sanitized regularly
Two five-step air purifiers with HEPA filters are running at all times, one with ionization to reduce airborne particulates.
I wear a mask at all times.
Laundry is done on high-temp to sanitize and I wear mask & sanitize hands when handling all laundry.
Are you careful outside of work? To keep my vulnerable clients and family members safe, I continue to wear a mask when in public and to limit unnecessary outings. However, it should be noted that I do attend college on-campus from September through April, and that my school has minimal safety guidelines. I continue to socially distance & mask whenever possible.
