Infection Prevention (Covid and More!)
My job as an Electrologist involves close contact with my clients. I take my protocols seriously and ask that my clients do to. I want to keep myself and my clients healthy! Please note that I require proof of primary series of vaccination as well as surgical, KN95 or KF94 masks in my office. In the days leading up to your appointment, please monitor your health. If you have a cough, fever or a temp of 100 or more, shortness of breath, sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, loss of smell/taste, severe headaches, diarrhea or a general sense of not feeling well, please contact me to reschedule. Even if you think it might just be allergies, I cannot see you. While unwanted hair is frustrating and upsetting, it is not worth spreading illness to myself, my family or my other clients. I do have a 48 hours cancellation policy but, as always, I will not charge you for illness and will thank you for not bringing it into my office.
Also, if you have traveled by air or to any place that is experiencing an outbreak, I ask that you wait a minimum of 7 days before coming to see me.
I am unable to provide a waiting room and ask that you arrive no more than a few minutes before your appointment. If you do not have a car to wait in, you are welcome to wait on my front steps. When you arrive you can knock on the front door or text me at 206.552.0215 and I will meet you outside to take your temperature. Please make sure that you are wearing a clean mask. If you do not have one, I will provide one for you. Please note that your mask may get soiled during treatments with witch hazel or other antimicrobial creams. If your temperature is below 100 and you have not had any known symptoms or exposures (including recent travel), I will direct you inside to wash your hands before coming into my treatment room.
Please wear socks to your appointment as I will require shoes to be taken off at the front door. If you have a purse with you, you can bring it into my office where there will be a place to set it down.
Masks will need to cover your mouth and nose for the majority of the time you are in my office. I have become quite adept at moving masks around in order to reach hairs and keep your nose covered at the same time. While doing upper lip work, I ask that you keep your mouth closed as much as possible and let me know if you feel you are going to sneeze.
My current schedule is Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 11:00 am to 4:00 p.m. I will see some clients after 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays if they cannot make the other times work.
I have a Clover register to process credit cards. I have the ability to tap, chip or swipe cards. I will also accept exact cash.
As always, I will have a half an hour scheduled between clients to give myself time to thoroughly clean and air out my office. Only myself and one client will be allowed in my treatment room at a time. I will not allow people to wait in my living room/waiting area anymore. If two family members come for appointments, one will need to wait in the car while the other gets treatments. The second person can not come in until I have cleaned the room.
If you, or someone you spend a lot of time with, tests positive and you have been to my office during a time you may have been infectious, I need to know as soon as possible as I will need to inform my other clients of exposure.
