How can you prepare for an in-home massage treatment?
Massage therapists have a duty of care to protect their clients from transmission of COVID-19. This can be particularly challenging for your in-home mobile massage therapist because their work involves travelling between settings where they have less control over COVID risk mitigations such as ventilation. There are some simple things you can do to help your massage therapist provide COVIDsafe treatments in your home.
1. Choose a large, well ventilated room for the treatment and open the windows for at least 30 minutes before your appointment. If you can find a suitable outdoor area, even better.
2. Turn off air-conditioning and heating systems that recirculate air. If you have an air purifier, have it running in the treatment space.
3. Make sure other members of the house stay away throughout the treatment, unless specifically needed to facilitate the treatment
4. Wear a mask. Your therapist will be wearing a respirator mask (N95/P2)
5. Cancel your appointment if anyone in the household has been directed to isolate. Tell your therapist if anyone in the house is unwell.
6. Get vaccinated for COVID-19. Current evidence shows that you are 20 times less likely to infect your massage therapist if you are vaccinated.
