Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy
Clients are requested to read the following Coronavirus Infection Prevention & Control Policy before attending for their appointment, to ensure that they are aware of health & safety procedures for the day.
- As Beauty Services are part of the Close Contact Industry, if possible, I am requesting that clients can confirm a negative lateral flow Coronavirus test to be taken in the 24 hours preceding their appointment – thank you for your understanding in providing the maximum protection possible to all of my clients.
- Should I feel ill or have any symptoms of COVlD-19, then I will arrange to take a lateral flow test at the earliest opportunity. If the result is positive and it will affect your booking, then I will let you know straight away.
- If you test positive for COVID-19 then I will need to reschedule your booking for no less than 5 days after the result and you can confirm that you have received two negative results on consecutive days.
- Unfortunately, if you are experiencing any COVID symptoms or have a temperature, I won’t be able to see you for your appointment until you are symptom free. I understand that this is very disappointing, especially if it is for a special occasion. For makeup lessons and trials, I will do my utmost to reschedule your appointment for the earliest possible opportunity.
- If a member of your household has Coronavirus or you are a Close Contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, then please let me know as soon as possible. Current Government advice will be followed.
On the Day of Your Appointment
- Please arrive for your appointment as close to the scheduled time as possible. To minimise unnecessary contacts, additional observers or children should not attend appointments with you.
- On your arrival, before entering the Studio (or before starting your makeup if at a location booking) your temperature will be checked with a non-contact infrared thermometer. As this is one of the common symptoms of Coronavirus, if an increased temperature is detected then unfortunately I will be unable to proceed with your booking at that time.
- I have increased the frequency of cleaning in the Studio including making sure that common surfaces, toilets door handles etc. are wiped clean using disinfectant products between each client.
- All tools, products and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers’ instructions for your safety, in between every client and at the end of the day.
- All clients will be required to apply hand sanitiser before entering the Studio. For location appointments, please ensure that you wash your hands immediately before coming for your makeup slot to minimise the risk of touching other surfaces whilst waiting.
- In accordance with best practice recommendations for the Close Contact Industry, face coverings should not be removed unless essential for a particular treatment – for example, in joint Makeup Lessons the mask should be kept on whilst you are observing, but removed when having your practical session.
- Unfortunately I won’t be able to offer refreshments, but you are welcome to bring along your own bottled water if you would like to.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do let me know and I will do what I can to help.
- To minimise the handling of cash, all payments should be made by BACS transfer.
I will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and make any further amendments as required.
