covid-19
procedures + protocols

Owner and LMT Emily Harding is fully vaccinated, having received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine in January and February, and a booster dose in September 2021. She is currently working in KN95 masks with a surgical grade mask over it for clients safety and protection.

 All clients who receive in-home sessions must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination.

 

Masks are required for ALL clients regardless of vaccination status for both in-home and in-office sessions. No exceptions. This includes while clients are face down on the table. Emily is currently working in kn95 masks to enhance those protections. Please note: cloth masks are no longer adequate while receiving massage therapy. HH requires KN94 or KN95 masks while receiving bodywork.

 

Screening upon arrival + during booking. When booking online, you will be prompted to fill out our virtual intake form.  If you book your appointments online you already know about the prompts regarding known covid exposures, signs or symptoms or preventing the spread of any potentially contagious illness. If you are sick or suspect you are sick in any way, you are unable to receive bodywork. This limits the risk of transmission of any potentially contagious illness even further.  

 

Routine Covid Testing Due to the rapid increase in positive cases in Westchester County, Emily is receiving PCR tests every other day, and has been tested this frequently since mid July. 

 

Sanitization All equipment and high touch surfaces are sanitized with disinfectant solution, Clorox wipes and hospital grade Sani-Cloths (which require the use of gloves - these wipes are heavy duty!). Linens are washed (and dried) on the hottest available settings for the longest duration with color safe bleach. HH is now utilizing an ultraviolet light approved by the FDA for 30 minutes between clients for further disinfecting.

 

Social Distancing Spacing clients out. If you’ve been to our White Plains studio, you know that you will never come in contact with the client before or after you. Clients have been spaced out by 30 minutes to ensure there is both time to cleanse the space adequately, as well as prevent those face to face interactions. 

 

Illness If clients are sick or suspect they are sick in any way they must cancel their appointments and cannot receive bodywork. If clients are knowingly exposed to covid they may not receive bodywork. If they have been exposed and in our office or received bodywork around that time, the clients must notify HH promptly to assess risk of exposure to themselves and other clients.
