Due to the coronavirus situation in Hong Kong, we wanted to introduce you to our new program, BloomMe Hygiene Plus, which clearly indicates spas and salons that follow strict hygiene and cleanliness standards. These spas carry out measures outlined below, in addition to our existing health and safety standards which all spas on BloomMe adhere to. This program is live in the app and will remain so, until such time the situation changes. This new spa program involves the following rules and regulations to ensure your safety and hygiene which is of the utmost importance.

 

BloomMe’s “BloomMe Hygiene Plus” Badge

In order to ensure that you will be able to relax with peace of mind when you book with BloomMe, we have handpicked a list of spas and salons with the highest level of hygiene. Spas that qualify as BloomMe Hygiene Plus will be indicated by a mint green badge on the spa icon.

For spas to be on the Top Hygienic Spa list, apart from the existing spa practices, all spas must meet strict hygiene standards and ALL of the criteria below:

 

1. All staff have masks 😷

All staff in the spas are required to wear masks during treatments. Wearing a medical mask has been scientifically proven to greatly reduce the spread of coronavirus. Spas in the BloomMe Hygiene Plus program are instructed to provide masks for their staff, in order to protect the safety of customers.

 

2. Access to hand sanitizer for guests and staff

There are many measures most of our spas are taking to maintain the highest level of hygiene. Spas on the BloomMe Hygiene Plus list must provide easy access to hand sanitizer for both guests and staff. The alcohol-based sanitizer is of 60% alcohol at least or more. This ensures the elimination of the virus. Spa workers are advised to wash their hands frequently with soap and water or uses an alcohol-based hand rub at all times.

 

3. Hourly disinfection of surfaces and equipment 🧼

All the equipment used including but not limited to: spa tables, massage tools, facial supplies, and more are all cleaned and sanitised on an hourly basis. They are cleaned with an anti-septic cleaning solution and wiped down after every use. The environment must always maintain the highest level of cleanliness in all of its facilities as well. Bathrooms, lobbies, and so on will all be sanitized vigilantly to ensure it is a safe environment. They will clean and disinfect frequently touches objects and surfaces using cleaning spray.

 

4. Refuse treatment for guests who display cold and flu symptoms

If customer displays symptoms of cold and flu, spas will refuse treatment and refer said customer to BloomMe customer service.

 

5. Staff to be given leave should they display cold and flu symptoms

Spas are advised to grant leave for workers who display cold and flu symptoms, so as to prevent cross infection between workers and customers.
