We continue to monitor developments from the Provincial Health Officer, WorkSafe BC, and our industry association to ensure we comply and operate in a manner that follows the best available practices.
While new restrictions were recently announced for certain businesses in BC, there are no major changes or restrictions recommended for spas and salons.
Our existing screening protocols and Covid-19 spa safety policies remain in place. We recently introduced an additional screening question to ensure we are not taking service appointments from clients travelling from outside of our community. Otherwise, you will continue to see the top half of our smiling faces when you come to the spa for services or retail purchases.
From Greg Robins, Executive Director of the BC BeautyCouncil:
“According to the government, the personal service sector has not been a significant source of COVID-19 infections; this is largely in part due to protocols and guidelines set out at the onset of the pandemic. BeautyCouncil, in collaboration with WorkSafe BC and Provincial Health, developed a reopening plan for all personal service providers which has proven to be effective and kept businesses open."
At Elements, we follow our comprehensive COVID-19 safety plan and we continue to be committed to the health and safety of our clients and staff. Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation!
We encourage everyone to follow the guidance of the provincial authorities related to gatherings and travel to keep us all safe. Our thoughts are with everyone negatively impacted by the pandemic, especially those who have been infected or lost loved ones.
