Robert of Philadelphia Salons COVID Summary Document

Our main goal is to keep everyone and their families healthy and safe.  We must all do our part to contribute to the safety of others, please keep in mind some people you work with may have immunocompromised family members or elderly family who are most at risk for severe consequences if they contract the virus. Let’s all do our part to be extra vigilant during this time to stay healthy and safe.


Right now, during the increase in cases it is important that you minimize activities other than essential activities and do not meet up with friends or family outside of who lives in your home.

Do not go to large social gatherings of any kind at this time. This is a recommendation given the average age of our client base and the personal nature of our business.


BACK TO WORK GUIDELINES

I feel sick what do I do? If you are at work go home immediately, check your temp, monitor your symptoms, write down your symptoms and the time and see a physician as soon as possible.

   If you are at home and you feel sick, stay home, call your physician and follow their guidance. Monitor your symptoms and temperature, write them down with the time so you don’t forget and so you can monitor your progress.


IF YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WHO HAS TESTED POSITIVE?

Monitor yourself for any symptoms, you can still go to work as long as the person who tested positive isn’t in your household, if they are in your household AND you have symptoms, stay home and consult your physician. If you develop symptoms or a fever consult your physician.

    Unless you have been directly exposed to someone who has tested positive, your physician will most likely not have you get tested even if you have symptoms.

Please keep in mind, aside from all recommendations, if you are having severe symptoms or trouble breathing at ANY time go to the hospital.

This document is not meant to replace medical advice from a licensed physician who knows your medical history. You know yourself better than anyone else, trust yourself and your instinct but don’t jump to conclusions, stay calm and get adequate rest, exercise and meals to stay as healthy as possible. Remember, mental health during this time is also very important, minimize anxiety and concern by calling friends or family or your physician.

IF YOU TEST POSITIVE

make sure to stay home for 3 days after your symptoms are gone and then you may return to work. You must also not have a fever to consider your symptoms gone.

If you test positive and continue to have symptoms up to 14 days stay home and consult your physician.

IF YOU TEST POSITIVE AND HAVE NO SYMPTOMS you should stay home for at least 10 days and consult your physician.

WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY REQUIRING A NEGATIVE TEST RESULT TO RETURN TO WORK

at this time because studies have shown that you may test positive for up to 60 days or more but you will not be shedding the virus and be spreading it to others.

WEARING A MASK:

Remember, if you don’t wear a mask properly it isn’t protecting you and others, the virus spreads by respiratory droplets and if you touch the outside of your mask and then fix your hair, etc you are contaminating yourself.

Adjusting your mask is also considered contaminating yourself because remember the outside of the mask is considered dirty so don’t touch it unless you are taking it off at the end of the day.

Minimize Exposure, Protect yourself, your family and your clients:

  • Do not touch your face, not once, not ever, not even with the mask on, not if your nose itches, not if you have a hair in your eye.
  • If your mask can’t stay on your face all day you need to get a mask that fits properly.
  • You should wash your mask every single time you wear it to work.
  • If you remove your mask improperly, discard the mask (or wash it), wash your hands and put on a new, clean mask.

Follow the video for how to properly put on and remove a mask.
