As the spread of COVID-19 becomes more prevalent, we find it necessary to explain the cautionary measures we’ve taken to lower the risk of transmission here at GLOW.
We understand that everyone is doing their part to reduce the spread of this virus. We want to assure you that we are keeping our health and yours a top priority.
Although none of the points below are new, we wanted to make you aware of what we do on a regular basis, and we are of course increasing our efforts to keep everyone safe and healthy.
If you have ever been to GLOW, you know that cleanliness is a high priority for us as we deal with blood on a daily basis.
-We have procedures we follow every morning, before and after each client, each night, weekly, and monthly
-We properly clean, sanitize and sterilize all of our equipment and tools after each client with hospital grade sanitization products
-We use single use items and dispose of them in a sharps containerWe wear masks and gloves during treatments
-We wash and sanitize our hands thoroughly and often
-We have had 3 routine checks (and passes) from Health Canada in the last two years (with the last check being only 2 weeks ago)
One of the benefits of GLOW is that it is a small, intimate place. We give ourselves 30 minutes after each client to properly clean and change over the room. We provide a boutique experience and never book back-to-back.
We are extremely cautious of the state of our own health as we work in such close proximity to you, and encourage you to also be mindful of the state of yours- recognizing if you are feeling off and taking the right precautions thereafter. Please be sure to wash your hands frequently, use sanitizer, and avoid touching your face.
Let’s focus on facts, not fear, support those in need in our community, and support small businesses during this time.
Since many of you have some time off, it is a perfect time to get out there and support local businesses and practice self-care and destress.
