The steps we are taking: we will require longer to decontaminate the treatment rooms. The room will need to be vacated, for a ‘fallow’ time period, after certain treatments, for the safety of everyone. You will notice extra technologies to enhance our COVID protocols such as dry foggers, suction of aerosols, fixed & mobile extractors and air purification. We look forward to seeing you.
