Normal Operations Phase 4
Guest Service Policies
LAST UPDATED May 24, 2021
UPDATED POLICY MASK MANDATE EFFECTIVE MAY 25, 2021
In accordance with the State of Florida and the CDC updated guidelines,
fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear masks at Divine Designs
It is recommended that unvaccinated guests continue to wear a surgical or other suitable face mask upon entry into our facility and while receiving salon or nail-spa services or in any area which is considered public or non-private but we will no longer be enforcing a face mask mandate and ask our guests to simply follow those safety guidelines which are best suited for their own personal health choices and level of comfort.
Masks may be removed once you have been escorted to your private guest suite to receive either massage or facial services and we are encouraging our team members to follow the same policies with respect to the use of facial masks.
As a guest, if you feel more comfortable with a service professional wearing a mask while serving you in our facility - simply ask him or her to do so.
All of our team members are willing to comply with any guest who feels more comfortable being served with a masked individual.
HIPAA LAWS PROHIBIT US ASKING YOUR AS TO WHETHER OR NOT YOUR ARE VACCINATED AND THESE SAME LAWS PROTECT OUR TEAM MEMBERS FROM BEING ASKED AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE VACCINATED - PLEASE RESPECT EVERYONE'S PRIVACY BY NOT ASKING ABOUT VACCINATIONS.
We offer incentives to our employees to ensure that their private health choices are balanced with their personal health beliefs and take into consideration the health and welfare of their co-workers as well as our guests.
Our guests should be aware that most of our service professionals have been vaccinated and those that have not been vaccinated are being encouraged to get the vaccine but Divine Designs will not mandate any employee to be vaccinated in order to provide services to guests.
While no business can guarantee a germ or virus free environment, we believe we have balanced our safety needs with our private and individual health care choices but welcome your comments or suggestions which can help us improve our delivery of services in this environment.
If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms which include a fever, we request that you cancel your reservation and not attempt to enter our facilities.

Sorry, personal checks are not accepted at Divine.

COVER YOUR MOUTH
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and put your used tissue in a waste basket. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
MINIMIZE TOUCHING SURFACES
Our staff are required to frequently clean all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, counter tops, and door handles but you should minimize your personal risk by avoiding touching any surfaces with your fingers if at all possible and use your elbows to open doors or use a tissue when you need to touch any surface that may be a viral depository. Please remember to discard the tissue in a wastebasket.
KEEP HANDS CLEANED
Keeping hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean water and you should take the time to frequently wash your hands (preferred) or use the hand sanitizers that we have placed in strategic locations throughout the building. You should also carry your own sanitizers for use in spa rooms, bathrooms or other private areas.
BASIC HYGIENE RULES
We understand that the Covid-19 virus is similar to viral flu-like outbreaks we have seen in the past. You can minimize your potential contact by simply following the same hygiene rules as you would for any influenza seasonal viral outbreak and while this may not guarantee your protection, it will reduce the possibility significantly.
QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS
If you have any concerns or questions about our internal policies with respect to our hygiene processes, please let any member of our management team know.
