Covid 19 and Oleander Piercing Client Guidance
These guidelines are in effect until otherwise stated. We cannot make any exceptions.
Last update MAY 27th, 2021 to NOSE AND MOUTH PIERCING.
Oleander Piercing and the public need to abide by a set of guidelines in place through Massachusetts with suggestions from the CDC. This is not only for your protection, but also our own. Because of this, we have a new set of studio guidelines for clientele, and we ask that you read through all of this information before coming into the studio.
We are dedicated to keeping the studio clean and safe. All clients are screened at the door with a brief questionnaire and temperatures are taken, face masks are mandatory (even if you have received a vaccine), and we have minimized the amount of people in the studio at a time. No services under the mask are performed to prevent any potential exposure of Covid to the staff and clientele.
Between each client all surfaces are disinfected including door handles, counter tops, coat hooks, tables, and credit card machine in addition to our regular cleaning. Book your appointment with confidence!
Failure to abide by these guidelines will result in non-entry to the studio.
You will be screened with a simple questionnaire and your temperature will be taken to ensure you are free of any Covid-19 related symptoms.
You will be asked to use hand sanitizer.
If applicable, we may ask that you disinfect your ID and credit card. Please have these pulled out and ready.
~FACE MASK STILL REQUIRED AT THIS TIME (REGARDLESS OF YOUR VACCINATION STATUS)
A face mask is required to enter the studio. The mask must be an ear loop style mask that completely covers your mouth and nose (no bandanas or scarves please). Do not touch or remove your mask in the studio. If you are in the studio for a nose or mouth piercing, the staff will let you know when it's appropriate to remove your mask. Please do not wear gloves in our establishment.
Even if you have the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, you will still need to wear a mask in the studio.
~NOSE OR MOUTH PIERCING **UPDATED 5-27-2021**
Masks are still required in the studio, even if you are coming in for a nose piercing.
We will be offering nostril and septum piercing again beginning June 1st, 2021 for folks who are fully vaccinated and it has been two weeks since your final dose, or can provide a negative Covid-19 test within 48 hours of your appointment. There are no exceptions at this time. Proof of vaccination or negative Covid-19 test will be required.
**Please keep in mind that nostril piercings could potentially have issues healing due to face mask wear and is not recommended. These complications are from the mask rubbing on, pushing down on, or getting caught underneath the piercing.**
We are not offering anything in or around the mouth at this time.
~GROUPS *updated 9-7-2020*
To reduce our risk of exposure, we will not be allowing more than two people in the studio at a time. If you bring more than one person with you they will be asked to wait outside. If you are a minor, you can bring one parent/guardian.
~PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING
We ask that you continue to practice social distancing in the studio, so please keep six feet from all staff and clients unless otherwise noted. Please stay at least six feet from any client who may be waiting outside. There will be social distance guidance posted in the studio.
For the time being, we are not accepting cash. This is to help minimize our exposure risk. We accept credit/debit card payments and touch free payments like Apple Pay.
We ask that you do not touch your face, face mask or piercing in the studio. We will offer hand sanitizer if you accidentally touch your mask, face or piercing.
Bring only what you need, like your ID and credit card. Leave everything else in your car if possible.
Do not touch or use your cell phone in the studio.
No food or drink is allowed. We have water available upon request.
