To our customers,
I’ve gone back and forth trying to decide which way to move forward. Ultimately, I referred back to my statement of making our decisions with the health and well-being of our members, customers, staff, and community as our highest priority.
While I believe the added measures we’ve implemented to keep you safe are effective in reducing the possible transmission for COVID-19, there is more we should do in the spirit of “do no harm”. Effective immediately, we join countless businesses small and large in closing our doors to help reduce the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
As I was composing this notice I learned we were on the right track. Colorado Governor Polis announced that all Colorado hair and nail salons, along with spas, tattoo, and massage parlors are to close until April 30, 2020.
Updated order from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) mandates that all businesses conducting “nonessential personal services” close to the public through April 30, 2020.
Massages scheduled between now and April 30, 2020, will be canceled for you.
To our valued members, this will require us to push your member benefits into May 2020. We are also offering you the option to convert your unredeemed member benefit for March and April into gift certificates if you’d like to pass them on as a gift. These certificates can be used anytime once we reopen.
Advice on staying healthy:
