Protecting Your Spa and Salon Clients and Staff During the Cold and Flu Season
Being a mother of four I have always been a bit concerned about germs and keeping my kids healthy, especially during cold and flu season. As I am sure we all are.
Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t a fanatic or anything… heck a bit of dirt never killed anyone, right? Well, that I know of, and waaaaay back when in ‘the good old days’ we just didn’t have all of the anti-bacterial products or even the concerns or attention on it that we have today.
Because we are so much more aware today than years ago, it is important to do our best or protect ourselves from any harmful bacteria or virus that can, not only steal time away from us, but actually jeopardize our lively hoods and rack up so pretty hefty medical bills to boot! However, no matter how hard we try at home or when we out and about, there is just no way to always protect ourselves 제주룸싸롱.
I will confess… I did become a fanatic of sorts from May 2010 through September 2011 when I was taking care of my daughter, Kathryn, 24/7 while going through cancer treatments. With the immune system so low all of the time, it is very important not to come in contact with any virus or bacteria… So I admit it, I carried the disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray and the anti-bacterial hand gel everywhere! Everything had to be wiped down before she came in contact with it to lessen the chance of contacting “a bug,” which would have been very detrimental.
This is what prompted me to sit down and write this. Kathryn’s twin sister, Michelle, recently had to go into the Emergency Room for dizziness and headache. While there she went into the back area to have the lab work done and when she was instructed to go back and sit in the waiting room for the results.
When she and her father first arrived there were two people in the waiting area, one broke a finger and the other had chest pains. In the back, however, every room was filled and the nurse said that she was the only one in the past four hours that wasn’t here because of the flu. By the time she came back out after the lab work she counted about 10 people laying all over the place, coughing, sneezing, fever, vomiting with more coming in the door! She sat far enough away from them and called me.
