COVID-19 Safety

While the comfort, healing, and relaxation of our clients have always been our top priority at Red Moon Wellness, your safety, as well as that of our staff and the greater community, will always come first. We have worked hard to not only implement the most comprehensive evidence-based set of changes and policies to minimize risks during the pandemic, but we have also meticulously thought through how to maintain the best client experience possible during our "new normal". We understand some things will feel different in your overall experience, but the heart of what we do - highly skilled therapeutic massage in a beautiful environment - will remain unchanged.

In order to minimize risk of COVID-19 transmission, we are in full compliance with (and in many cases taking greater precautions beyond) NY State reopening requirements for Phase 3 Industries, NYC regulations, and CDC and OSHA guidance for disinfection. Accordingly, we have implemented a variety of policies that pertain to both clients and staff as well as extensive disinfecting procedures. Read on for a summary of changes, details on client policies, as well as information on our client & staff health screenings.

Summary of Changes

UPDATE March 2022: As a health care facility that specializes in working with high risk populations, we continue to maintain strict mask policies for all clients and staff.

UPDATE December 2021: We continue to take the strongest Isolation + Quarantine protocols with our staff and clients, despite CDC loosening these guidelines. Details below. 

Vaccination Policy 

Red Moon Wellness believes in the importance of COVID-19 vaccines for the safety of our community. We are in full compliance with the NYC “Vax to Work” mandate which requires all employees of NYC private businesses to receive their first dose by December 27, 2021. Since the mandate allows for legitimate accommodations for medical or religious reasons, and because you may want to request someone who is fully vaccinated + boosted, you have the right to request a therapist who has voluntarily signed a disclosure allowing us to share their vaccination status. Just call our front desk to request a verified vaccinated therapist when booking. Beyond our compliance with the vaccine mandate, we continue to take the strongest precautions against COVID including universal mask-wearing for all staff and clients as well as the addition safety measures described below.

Red Moon is taking the highest level precautions:

Medical Massage is an Essential Health Care Service in NY State and new data indicates that massage seems to be a low risk activity when performed with proper precuations. Details on our blog.

Client Policies

When booking an appointment all clients are required to read and agree to the following policies:

Client & Staff Screenings

In addition to temp checks, all staff and clients will be required to sign the following health declaration before every time they enter the studio. 

By signing below, I attest that all of the following is true about me and everyone in my household in the past 14 days:

I understand I will need to attest to this health declaration again before every appointment at Red Moon Wellness while the COVID-19 pandemic continues. I understand that if anything changes related to my health or possible COVID-19 exposure between the time I attest to this and the time of my appointment that would render anything on this declaration form no longer true, I will contact Red Moon Wellness right away to reschedule. If you need to late cancel for this reason you will receive a make-up session so as to avoid a cancellation fee.

*"Close contact" is defined as closer than 6 feet distance for greater than 10 minutes time over a 24 hour period.
