The Covid-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is important to minimise risk of infection when in close contact (less than 2 metres) with another person and to prevent transmission of the disease via respiratory droplets on hard surfaces. Whilst close contact is an essential part of most beauty services, the following guidelines aim to minimise risk wherever possible and must be followed to ensure the safety of both client and beauty service provider.
Little City Treat will follow Government safety guidelines closely to ensure that that services can resume when it is deemed safe for all concerned. As the advice from Government is regularly updated, we will endeavour to keep this page up to date to keep both clients and service providers informed.
The beauty industry in its entirety has been significantly effected by COVID-19 and there are many challenges in restarting operations safely. There are certain aspects to mobile beauty which enable greater control over the safe working environment which will be required in the immediate future. Visiting clients in their own home allows exposure to potential infection to be kept to a minimum and enables both parties to establish the others health through symptom recognition and temperature checks, which would be substantially more difficult on a salon environment. In addition to this, due to the one-to-one nature of the booking it will also be far more condusive to any track and trace requirement.
Health and safety of both clients and therapists is of key priority during the delivery of mobile beauty services. The following risk assessment both identifies and seeks to minimise possible risk factors that may arise during a mobile beauty treatment. The resulting guidelines set out recommendations to ensure that every measure is taken to ensure the treatment is carried out in the safest possible conditions.
If the client is experiencing any symptoms of respiratory illness (a raised temperature, a new, persistent cough or cold, or loss of, or change in sense of taste or smell, regardless of whether you think it’s COVID-19) the client should follow government guidelines with regards to self-isolation and refrain from booking an appointment until it is safe to do so.
If the therapist is experiencing any symptoms of respiratory illness (a raised temperature, a new, persistent cough or cold, or loss of, or change in sense of taste or smell, regardless of whether you think it’s COVID-19) the therapist should follow government guidelines with regards to self-isolation and refrain from delivering an appointment until it is safe to do so.
