COVID-19 has caused a wave of messages from our lovely clients asking when we will be able to reopen. At the time of writing this (28/05/2020) we only know that we won’t be in the first wave of businesses reopening. and that we may be allowed to reopen in July. We thought we would help put your minds at ease about safety at Rogue by letting you know what changes we are implementing in store for reopening time.
Longer Appointment Only – We work mainly by appointment but to allow time to clean more of the studio before and after each client we will be solely appointment based. Each appointment will also be longer than normal.
Single Client – To minimise contamination we will only be allowing one client per staff member. For piercings on minors and intimate we will allow a parent/legal guardian or a chaperone. Make sure to select which staff member you want to visit on our booking screen.
No Waiting Area – We will temporarily close our waiting area. Our comfy sofa will be back soon!
Mask and Gloves For Clients – Each client will be given a face mask and nitrile gloves as well as having access to hand sanitiser when they enter the store. This will help us create a clean bubble.
Cashless Payments – By paying with card you help us not having to hand cash and change between ourselves and our clients.
Remote Consent Forms – When you book your appointment you will be emailed a link to where you can fill out your consent form. We will check the info on our shop PC so we aren’t sharing tablets or pens.
Masks and Visors for Staff – Our staff will be wearing more PPE than usual. We understand it can look scary but we promise we’ll do our best to ease the tension with bad humour and even worse dancing.
Social Distancing Markers in Store – We will create zones around the store so it’s easier to keep distance between everyone.
Front Desk Screen – A perspex screen will create a barrier at our front desk to protect us while we serve you.
Increased Cleaning Schedules – We already use medical grade disinfectants regularly throughout the store but we have increased how often we clean public surfaces such as door handles etc.
Limited Piercing Range – We will be holding off on Oral and Nasal piercings for a short while. This takes away some of our favourite piercings but we’ll bring them back as soon as it is safe to do so.
Training – As well as all of these changes we have also been working on our knowledge behind the scenes and taking WHO courses in Infection Control, Decontamination, Hygiene and COVID-19.
We love what we do and we love sharing it with you. As soon as we know when we can reopen we will post on our social medias and open our booking system again. Thank you to everyone that has locked down, quarantined or continued an essential service. We will do our very best to keep everyone safe from COVID-19 at Rogue when we are allowed to reopen. But for now Stay Safe everyone!
