COVID-19 and Your massage session

August 27, 2019 - Starting in September, I will be contacting current clients on a case by case basis to come in for massage therapy sessions.  I will start working gradually on Wednesdays and Fridays and only seeing a few clients on those days.  I am starting with only 1 hour sessions as the spread of the virus seems to be connected with the amount of time together.  Since there is no way to safely socially distance during a massage, I will be wearing a mask and faceshield.  I will be cleaning the office and waiting room thoroughly and leaving the window open.

You must be following the guidelines and be social distancing as much as possible.  You must be COVID-19 free meaning you have not come in contact with anyone who has the virus for 14 days at least.  If you have had COVID-19 yourself, you will need to have tested negative for two times and not have ANY symptoms.

Masks must be worn at all times in the office and in the building.   (I have masks if you need a new one).  I have a sink in the office for hand- washing and hand sanitizer freely available around the office.  

After the session, I will contact you a few days after to see if you are still virus free.  Contact me ASAP if you become sick with ANY symptoms within a few weeks of your session.   If you come down with the virus, I will have to be tested and shut down until it is all clear to resume massage. 

I have not encountered any client or any person/situation where an active case of COVID-19 has been found to my knowledge.  I ask that you be COVID-19 free also as far as you know.  I will ask you about it when you arrive. 

Sessions will be limited and subject to last minute changes.  

Thanks very much!
