We are excited to be open, but we all must understand that this pandemic is not over. We must all do our part to help reduce the risk of spreading this novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and the potentially deadly COVID-19 disease that it can cause. As such, we are following Federal, State, and Local guidance regarding COVID-19 best practices.
The information below will help you understand what level we’re operating at, what we expect of you, and what we’re doing. This page will be updated as our practices and protocols change in alignment with the various stages of pandemic recovery.
Note that we are now adding a $5.00 COVID-19 SURCHARGE to all service tickets to help offset the many additional costs associated with implementing government guidelines. We did it this way so we can offset the costs now and then easily remove the surcharge once the pandemic is officially over and we no longer have to follow the additional guidelines that are consuming additional time and money.
We are operating in compliance with Anne Arundel County’s Road to Recovery which is in alignment with Maryland’s Roadmap To Recovery.
A brief summary of the most important guidelines for salons are as follows: by appointment only, face coverings required, screening for symptoms, 6 feet of physical distancing when possible, no waiting in the salon, additional cleaning and disinfection protocols.
At this point, we are basically operating at normal capacity again, but within new guidelines, and with additional protocols. Depending on demand, we may be working extended hours in attempt to help as many people as possible. We are also maintaining a waiting list to help fill appointments that cancel due to symptoms.
Things are going to be a little different while we work through various phases of reopening. Aside from following government guidance, we are doing everything we can think of to help reduce risk for our staff and our clients. We are doing our best to schedule appointments with plenty of time to account for our new sanitary protocols, but please be understanding if we have some occasional hiccups. We want everyone to have an amazing experience, but we cannot and will not cut corners when it comes to following our new protocols and guidelines.
Please read the items below for more details, but if you’ve been following the news, our guidelines are probably similar to those that you are already following when visiting other essential business establishments.
Stay safe! See you soon!!
