Coronavirus Updates

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR RELAX SALT ROOMS CLIENTS

 All of our team members have been vaccinated for the safety of our guests and our team. 

We are so excited to announce that we will be reopening at a reduced capacity with additional procedures for our team and our guests in place! 

 August 5th: 

Although we just announced that face mask requirements were going to be relaxed at our location, we feel it is prudent—on behalf of our team and guests at risk—to continue to require face masks in the near term. As a health and wellness facility, our primary concern is keeping our guests and team members as safe as possible. Therefore, effective immediately we will be requiring face masks in crossover areas where guests get less than 6 feet from each other which includes the boutique and locker areas. 

We will continue to monitor current COVID-19 numbers for the state of Florida and Alachua County and make adjustments to our mask policy going forward as conditions allow. When case counts start to recede, we will reevaluate our mask policy for vaccinated guests.

 On a personal note, I thank everyone who continues to wear face masks to help keep small business owners like myself from getting sick so that I am able to continue to safely run my business. Your support means so much to me!

 

Changes to procedure coming August 1st!

  • Starting August 1st our adult salt room will be at a capacity of 4 people for regular salt sessions. Private groups of up to 8.
  • Vaccinated adults are not required to wear a face mask. Please be aware that if we have a guest in the building that is immune compromised you may be asked to put a mask on.
  • We are grateful for our guests that continue to wear a mask! Please ask for a mask if needed.
  • Sessions will start on the hour. Guests arriving late may be asked to reschedule if the session has already started.
  • As sessions are communal again, guests arriving with heavy perfumes or smelling of smoke may be asked to reschedule. We have many guests who have respiratory conditions that can be triggered by these scents.
  • Group sessions will increase in capacity as well. Yoga, Crystal Singing Bowls, and Guided Meditation will increase to 6 guests per session.
  • Our team is fully vaccinated for the safety of our guests and team members.

Date 3-17-20

Due to the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak and the absolute need to take appropriate measures to protect ourselves, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our guests, Relax Salt Rooms will be changing how we operate. This is to ensure we are using all available protective measures that keep our clients safe and still allow us to remain in business.

 

After doing research and staying informed we have decided to make some additional changes to our existing protocol as well as add new protocols into place. We still do not know the full impact of what the coronavirus can do. Salt is antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, and builds immune systems. But this is a new strain and we are taking extra precautions until we know what we are dealing with.

 

Existing protocol:

  • All neck warmer pillowcases are removed after every guest and sanitized. All neck warmers are kept in a warmer between sessions that heat to 150 degrees.
  • All blankets are washed after every use.
  • Throughout the day/end of day the chairs in salt room are wiped down with Benefect CD33GL Decon 30. This has always been a procedure due to the sensitivity of our guests with Cystic Fibrosis, COPD, etc.
  • All toys cleaned with Benefect CD33GL Decon 30 after every child’s room session.

 

Starting today:

  • Our adult room will only seat 4 people at a time. If we have a session that is currently booked for more than 4 we will be calling guests to move people around.
  • Our booking system can only book one child in the room at a time. If you want to bring siblings, please book for one child and you are welcome to bring the second in.
  • Chairs are now cleaned after every session with the Benefect CD33GL Decon 30.
  • All surfaces, door handles, knobs, etc are wiped down during sessions all day long.

What you can do to help:

  • If you have traveled to a ‘hot spot’ please stay home
  • If you feel even the slightest bit sick please stay home
  • If you have chronic cough (associated with asthma, COPD, etc) or special circumstances please call us so we can help you get your session booked.
  • Take time to care for yourselves and be kind to others going through this.

We appreciate all the community support we have received so far. As things change quickly so may our status so please check back with us regularly. Thank you for continuing to boost your immune system, cleanse and open your respiratory system, and detox with us!
