The time has eventually coming soon , I am getting ready to open our doors at JM Body Care clinic for the first time since lockdown started.
Lockdown was put in place all over the world as a science backed way of limiting the spread of Coronavirus. This was mainly to stop our hospitals being overwhelmed and reduce overall case numbers.
The positive effect of lockdown was controlling the virus, the negative has been the impact on the economy and it’s now time for the whole world to start recovering.
It’s also time for you to start recovering as we aim to open on July 2020.
Whilst closed, we have been undertaking all the necessary arrangements for making the clinic environment meet the new standards which are required for safety in the post COVID-19 era.
Please keep your eye on updates which will will be done regularly.
Hygiene and client safety has always been a top priority but Coronavirus has changed the way in which the world works – especially in regard to close contact and hygiene.
To ensure the clinic is prepared to the new standards in which the world must meet – we have performed a detailed risk assessment to identify any potential issues with my clinic and improve its safety and hygiene.
A deep clean of the clinic has been performed in preparation for re-opening and there will be more frequent deep clean sessions performed each week.
Payment for the foreseeable future will be via card payment and Direct Bank transfer only. This reduces the chance of spread of infection caused by money. We will only accept money in exceptional circumstances.
Purchase of PPE, cleaning products and temperature monitoring equipment have all been made in advance. You will be provided with PPE on arrival at the clinic.
The clinic has been prepared in line with social distancing recommendations to maintain distance from other people.
Reduced facilities have also been a major change – this including the toilet at the clinic – please consider this on the day of your appointment.
Ventilation of all clinic rooms will be ensured with open windows or doors where possible to reduce the risk of airborne infection.
Guidelines, Recommendations & Covid-19 Risk Assessment
To guarantee safe opening, we are taking the advice of 2 separate governing bodies which are:
Both governing bodies released updates in May about return to clinic and face to face appointments.
Their guidance includes research and science backed safety procedures in order for you to be safe in clinic.
Their guidelines help us to provide safe and hygienic ways of delivering our massage services without endangering yours or our health.
July 4th is the current date in which has been agreed for return to face to face appointments – this may be subject to change.
Based on all governing bodies recommendations there will be a questionnaire to screen each client who comes to the clinic which must be signed.
As a responsible therapy provider I will also encourage clients and to use the NHS test and trace service if they symptoms or know someone who has.
If you experience any symptoms or you are shielding/isolating – please do not consider booking an appointment.
This is the new protocol for you attending clinic in July:
- Book appointment online or by phone
- Complete COVID-19 disclaimer prior to arriving at clinic
- Only enter the building if I notify you be phone or text
- Temperature taken on arrival with infrared contactless thermometer
- Medical grade PPE & appropriate hand hygiene provided for you
- Card Payment Direct Bank Transfer Only
