Coronavirus and the Economy
Be proactive and be sure to put out a statement to your guests.  Here is an example from partner salon https://www.instagram.com/serenityspaandsalon/ Your Health is Important to Us! Your health is important to us! We want to provide you with an update on Serenity's work monitoring the current status of COVID-19. Our management team met today to discuss the measures we will be taking to ensure the health of our team and clients alike. We are enforcing our daily cleaning protocol with additional measures to disinfect all areas throughout the day. We are staying up to date with all recommended CDC information and will be running the salon/spa in accordance with their recommended guidelines. As always, Serenity asks you kindly to stay home if you are experiencing any illness symptoms, including, but not limited to, sneezing, coughing, and fever. It is our practice to ask our employees to stay home when they are feeling ill as well and we practicue this culture throughout the year. The CDC has continued to recommend performing good hygience skills, which includes washing hands for 20 seconds on a regular basis, coughing or sneezing into your elbow, staying home if you are ill, and disinfection of commonly touched surfaces. Your continued support is appreciated and your health is important to us!
