Mandated Requirements For Reopening on May 6, 2020
We are not letting our guard down, and asking you to do the same.
E1Body and Soul is reopening on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 with new mandated rules and regulations from the State of Tennessee, as well as, State Board of Licensing and Cosmetology Department Of Commerce and Insurance.
Implementing these rules are not an option. We must follow to keep our doors open, as well as, to help protect you, your family, as well as, myself, and my family.
*Cosmetologists are 15 inches from the client and directly in path when shampooing and rinsing. We are asking clients to shampoo hair (if can) before arriving. If hair dries before arriving, I can wet with salon spray bottle. If service requires shampoo; then we will shampoo.
*CALL EARLY to book your appointments, for I will NOT book clients close together at the last minute.
*Clients will wait OUTSIDE their vehicle for accurate temperature checks via touchless thermometer. (wait inside your vehicle in inclement weather).
Above 99.5 will not be admitted.
*I will walk to your car shortly after you see the other client leaves. I will take your temperature, ask you a few questions....
(1) Have you had a fever in the last 48 hours?
(2) Have you been in close contact with anyone with Covid-19?
(3) Are you experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat?
*Each client will receive a loop mask to wear when arriving (feel free to bring your own). First mask is FREE. (Please keep your mask for future appointments). There will be an additional fee for masks given after received first free mask.
*No mask, No service. (Not my rule. Mandated by the State of TN).
*You may then enter the salon
*Is it possible to wear a mask during a service?
(We work around oxygen hoses when needed, we can work around Masks. Due to NOT being able to wear mask:, Beard trimming will NOT be allowed till phase two. Each client is required to take their mask with them.
*Each client will wash hands upon arrival.
*I will sterilize between each client.
*I will have on a face shield.
*I will be wearing gloves when possible.
*Hand sanitizer will be available in salon for public use.
*Hand towels will be replaced with paper towels.
*Each client will receive a clean salon cape.
*We are not offering client robes at this time. Please bring an older shirt to wear if needed.
*Blow drying the hair dispenses germs into the air, with no way to sterilize the air. At this time, we are advised NOT to blow dry. If it is a must (e.g., special occasion style, shampoo and style, etc), we will proceed with your service, otherwise we will not offer this service till phase 2.
*If you have an appointment - DO NOT bring anyone with you unless they also have an appointment. Each client will be asked to sit in car, till the other is completed. Of course, unless it is a child.
*If you need to shop or pick up an order - APPOINTMENT REQUIRED. No one is allowed with other clients in salon.
*I’m aware you may not show symptoms for days. But, we are trying to keep you, your loved ones, as well as, my family safe. SO, YOU MUST STAY HOME if you have symptoms, if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19, as well as, traveled. YOU WILL BE RESCHEDULED at a later date if any above applies to you.
*If I have been around someone with COVID -19 or show symptoms- your appointments will be cancelled and rescheduled to a later date.
*If needed, I will work 10 hour days to space clients out to one client, in salon, at a time.
*I will NOT have an assistant during this pandemic, so please be patient. Sterilizing between each client will take time, for we need to keep everyone as safe as possible.
*No product testers (in-store) or hand lotions (in restrooms) will be available.
*At this time (mandated by the state of TN), E1Body and Soul can not offer any beverages or food. You may bring a sealed bottle water with you. We can not provide it to you.
*No magazines, books, or any shared material allowed.
*Windows will be opened when possible to increase circulation.
*Due to the nature of this pandemic and in helping keep the salon sterile (as possible), please be on time or we may need to reschedule your appointment.
This will be updated and most likely change day by day, as we follow CDC regulations. If we go on quarantine once again, all appointments will be rescheduled to a later date.
