Roll Backs & Red Zones
As of today's press conference, Governor Baker has not rolled back beyond Phase 3, Step 1. The mayor of Boston rolled back farther but that only applies to Boston at this time. Massage falls under Phase 2, Step 2. Until we go back to a prior phase, we will remain open and provide services to the best of our ability. We have our masks on during all client interactions, and wear a new apron for every client. The glove requirement has been waived for massage therapy but we still have an ample supply for clients that prefer us to use them.
Our massage therapists live in Yarmouth, which is now considered a red zone. They both have limited their interactions to work, gas station, and minimal grocery store runs. All of these activities are done with a mask on. Neither have had any confirmed exposure or symptoms. The schedule changes have minimized the potential exposure between staff members. In the rare instance we have an overlap in our schedules, all staff wear masks around each other.
With that information in mind, clients that feel comfortable coming in may continue to do so. Clients that want to wait, please let us know so we can pause any billing and/or adjust expiration dates on pre-paid services.
We do not expect to have access to the vaccine until April, at the earliest. This gives us time to discuss and research more before we make any definitive decisions. We will not require our staff or clients to receive the vaccine to continue working or to receive services. It is new, both the virus it is treating and the mRNA delivery method. The best decision for one person differs from the best decision for someone else. However, based on our discussions thus far, our staff seem likely to choose to vaccinate. (Did you know that Ashley’s educational background includes 3 years of nursing school as well as continuing education classes on pharmaceuticals?!)
