On June 15, 2021, Governor Newsome lifted most restrictions for businesses regarding capacity, social distancing and mask protocols for vaccinated individuals.
However, as a health care setting, our clients come from, well, everywhere! All shapes and sizes, age groups, backgrounds, ethnicities. Young. Old. Male. Female. Gay. Straight. Trans. Married. Single. Black. Brown. Red. Yellow. White. Desk jockeys, construction workers, servers, financial advisors, teachers, doctors, students... literal rocket scientists! Each of them has a story, Each of them has a challenge. And, coming here, they may have some health issues. Maybe it's just sore muscles. Maybe it's something more serious. Something that may leave them immunocompromised, or more high-risk for complications with either the vaccine itself or one of the many variants still emerging across the globe.
We are an international city, and as our state begins to open up again and we all attempt to return to normalcy we feel it is important to keep in mind how quickly things can turn around. Yes, we can take solace in our state's climbing vaccination numbers and declining case counts. But we should also be mindful of lessons learned and the simple steps that have kept Côte d'Azur's transmission rate at ZERO even through the worst of the pandemic:
Wear a mask.
It's simple. It's effective. It's been a staple of hospitals and surgical rooms for over a century! It stops COVID, variants... even the flu (which is why many of you haven't been sick for over a year). And it is the one thing we can continue to do to ensure that clients and staff remain safe as we strive to put this pandemic far behind us.
Therefore, we at Côte d'Azur will continue to maintain our COVID protocols for the forseeable future until we deem it is safe for everyone to continue without them. We appreciate your cooperation in making sure our services are Safe for All.
For more information or questions, please call at (626)396-3030, text to (818) 640-7790 or email us at email@example.com.
In order to maintain a safe environment for both clients and therapists, we have needed to adjust many of our protocols and procedures. These are quite extensive, and encompass more frequent and rigorous sanitation and cleaning of doorknobs, frequently touched surfaces, common areas, bathrooms and treatment rooms, as well as reduced capacity to ensure social distancing and the use of face masks and other personal protective equipment. We adhere to the most stringent sanitation and infection control protocols for all our tools and equipment as outlined by the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology, but have now expanded those to include guidelines by the State, County and City Health Departments, the CDC, WHO and other major health organizations.
While we understand these procedures can seem cumbersome at times, they are important not only for your safety and the safety of your healing artist, but for the family, friends, co-workers and total strangers we encounter every day. Only by working together, and for each other, will we emerge from these most trying times.
The world is kind of a scary place right now. We're here to offer a bit of respite.
All procedures are by appointment only. Nothing new here. Please call us at 626-396-3030, text us at 818-640-7790 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org (Due to limited availability and reduced capacity, online booking is not available.)
We will ask you a series of brief health question regarding any exposure to or symptoms of COVID-19. This will be the first of several times we ask these questions, and it is important that you are completely honest with us. Reducing the spread of infection starts here.
Please shower and dress in clean, comfortable clothing before arriving to your appointment.
Please arrive ahead of time and call us when you've arrived. You will need to stay in your car until we are ready to bring you inside. At this point, we will have you fill out any new paperwork we do not already have on file. If we are not yet ready for you, we will call or text when you may come in.
You MUST wear a face mask at all times when on the premises, inside or out. This includes during your treatment, with the sole exception being any facial service. There are no exceptions.
Only persons with appointments are permitted inside the facility. No guests are allowed. If someone is dropping you off/picking you up, they will need to wait inside their vehicle. Or they can take a walk. Or a drive. Pasadena is very nice...
Bring minimal items into the location such as keys and wallet. Leave drinks or food at home or in car.
We will greet you at the door, take your temperature, and ask The Three Questions regarding any symptoms or diagnosis of COVID-19. We understand this may seem repetitive, but studies have shown a certain percentage of individuals are incapable of concealing the truth after being asked a question 3 times. Safety first and all.
You will then be directed to wash your hands before proceeding to the treatment room.
Once in the treatment room, your therapist will direct you on how to proceed. Your clothes and personal items will need to be placed in the plastic bin provided (this is cleaned and sanitized between every use.)
In order to prepare for the next client, we will escort you out at the conclusion of your visit.
As mentioned before, we have instituted rigorous sanitation protocols to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus. The facility is cleaned daily, and all treatment rooms, bathrooms and frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, countertops, pens, clipboards etc are cleaned after every use/client.
Hand Sanitizers are available in every room, and at each entrance/exit to the facility.
