Covid 19 and Oleander Piercing Client Guidance
These guidelines are in effect until otherwise stated. We cannot make any exceptions.
Last update JANUARY 15th, 2022.
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 required to wear face masks (even if you have received a vaccine), and we have minimized the amount of people in the studio at a time. 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.
~DO NOT ENTER IF YOU ARE SHOWING SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19 OR HAVE COME INTO CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS COVID-19. If we are exposed or get sick, we will need to close. Please be considerate and reschedule your appointment if you are sick or have been around someone who is.
~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 piercing, the staff will let you know when it's appropriate to remove your mask.
Worcester has a mask mandate in place requiring masks be worn in all businesses. Thank you for your cooperation.
~UNDER MASK SERVICES *updated 1-15-2022*
Masks are still required in the studio, even if you are coming in for a nostril or septum piercing.
-BEGINING FEBRUARY 1ST, BOOSTER SHOTS ARE REQUIRED FOR UNDER THE MASK SERVICES.
We are offering nostril and septum piercings and jewelry changes 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 if you wear a face mask all day every day. These complications are from the mask rubbing on, pushing down on, or getting caught underneath the piercing.**
We are not offering any piercing or jewelry changes in or around the mouth at this time.
To reduce our risk of exposure, we will not be allowing more than three people in the studio at a time. If you bring more than two people with you they will be asked to wait outside. If you are a minor, you can bring both parents/guardians.
~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.
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.
If you cannot abide by these guidelines, please do not come into the studio until you can or we will ask you to leave. We are taking every precaution necessary to keep our studio clean and to keep us and our clients healthy.
We appreciate your understanding and patience while we get through this. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
