COVID-19: Policies & Expectations
IMPORTANT UPDATE: With Auckland having moved (from Dec 3, 2021) into the Covid Protection Framework (“Traffic Light” system), full current vaccination is now a condition of entry to ikoi Day Spa.
We’ll be asking our customers to indicate they are FULLY IMMUNISED against COVID-19. That means people will need to have had both shots of the Pfizer or another approved vaccine, at least 14 days before a booking.
My Vaccine Passes are required to be shown and scanned, with photo ID for new customers.
We continue to follow the advice of the Ministry of Health and are reviewing the situation regularly and wanted to take this opportunity to let you know about the actions we’re taking to keep you and our staff safe.
We will also need your support to keep our spa clean and safe. We ask that you continue to use good handwashing and hygiene procedures, good coughing etiquette and to reschedule your appointment if you are feeling unwell.
Some of the steps we have / are taking to protect you and our staff:
We have added a booking instruction to our online booking process explaining our expectations around sickness.
We have posted on our social media channels to let clients know of our rebooking policy.
We have a sign on our front door and at reception outlining our appointment policies and expectations around sickness.
We provide hand sanitiser in the lobby, in reception and in the lounge area and ask all visitors to use it before entering our spa facility and as deemed necessary.
Our internal door to the reception area is kept closed. Visitors and clients are required to scan in and also provide proof of full vaccination before they may enter the spa.
We will ask anyone looking unwell to leave and to reschedule their appointment for when they are symptom-free.
We have always understood the importance of good cleaning and hygiene for our clients – we have reviewed and updated our cleaning and sanitising plan for our day spa to ensure more frequent cleaning and with extra care – especially on high contact surfaces like our EFTPOS pin pads, relaxation area, door handles and bathroom taps.
We can assure you we are taking the same precautions with all our staff at ikoi Spa – supporting them with clear health and hygiene protocols in the spa, as well as the information they require if they need to stay at home if they are feeling unwell for any reason.
Our staff are fully vaccinated and will wear a face mask when treating clients.
We are committed to keeping you up to date with any changes that we need to make during this time. For timeliness, this will be done via our social and email channels.
We hope the measures we have and are taking provide confidence that you are able to continue to enjoy our spa services in a clean and safe environment – there’s nothing better to help you reduce stress during these uncertain times than treating yourself, or a loved one, to an ikoi Spa treatment.
Please take care of yourselves and your family and let’s all work together to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
