Lotus Blooms COVID-19 Statement
Hello lovely Lotus Blooms customers!
As a socially responsible small business, we want to make sure you can be confident that we are doing all we can to fulfill our commitments to our staff and to our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of you know that we voluntarily shut our doors to the public in March of 2020, in order to protect our staff and customers. Now in June we are ready to start reopening slowly and carefully. We are not using the Northern Virginia Phase 1 or 2 or 3 reopening timeline- we are reopening at a slower pace. We will be following the mandates set forth by the state of VA. Read on to understand the precautions we are taking and the changes you should expect to see during your upcoming visits.
Thanks for all your patience, understanding, and patronizing! This small business appreciates you!
Following are the measures we are taking to help create a clean and safe environment for customers:
______________For Our Staff
Our staff will be wearing masks or face coverings throughout their shift
We have sinks and hand sanitizer for them to use before and after every interaction with a customer, or every two hours as indicated by a timer.
HEALTH SCREENING, TAKING TEMPERATURES
They have been provided with a thermometer and have been asked to take their own temperature around the same time every day to establish a baseline. If, on a day they are scheduled to work, their temperature is higher than normal, their shift will be covered, and they will be asked to stay home, though still paid for their scheduled shift.
___________In the store______________________
BY APPOINTMENT ONLY SHOPPING –(As of 7/8/20)
Our customers are welcome in the store during their scheduled appointment, for up to 30 mins at time. You must have an appointment to shop and appointments are first-come first-served. Check out available in-store shopping appointments now!
In order to maintain the bodysafe integrity of the store we will have a list of changes to the in-store shopping experience. See in detail here. All guests will need to agree to the changes before scheduling their appointment.
THE CLEAN FAIRY
We have created our schedule to have one person on staff responsible for all the cleaning and sanitizing at a time. This way they can focus on this important role. They will monitor staff and customers for touching of face and come around with gentle reminders and hand sanitizer. They will be responsible for the cleaning of high-touch surfaces every two hours, and will ask staff and customers to maintain social distances. They will monitor the limit of people in the store.
We have postponed all events for the foreseeable future. We will begin workshops again as soon as it is safe. If you have questions about a ticket you have purchased previously, please contact email@example.com with questions.
