Circle of Life is dedicated to providing a safe and healthy environment for our staff, clients, and the public in general.
As of now, Blair county is in the yellow phase of reopening. This means that our center in Altoona will remain closed to the public and we will not reopen until Blair County is in the green phase. This could be months off, depending on disease behavior as the Pennsylvania eases restrictions. In the mean time, we are having a serious look at how to most safely provide our services to our clients.
Clients will be required to wear a mask when entering Circle of Life and we are still working out the best protocol for while a treatment is in session. More details to come as we get closer to reopening.
Please know we are working diligently to bring the facility into compliance with many of the health requirements now in place for businesses. We are installing touch-less paper towel dispensers, soap dispensers, and sanitizer stations in the restrooms and strategically through the common areas of the building.
We are also incorporating new policies and procedures dealing specifically with COVID-19 and the requirements and recommendations from the CDC, the Pennsylvania state licensing agency for massage therapists, and the professional associations we are members of. These guidelines are for the safety and well being of our staff and the public and we will do our best to be up to date on the latest information available.
We are also thinking of ways to improve safety in ways that are not or are not yet legislated, like ways to reduce risk of transmission during payment transactions. We are working hard to combine our unique knowledge of human health with state standards to open our business as an example of responsibility in uncertain times.
Our team will be ready to provide the therapies you have come to rely on for your health and well being in the weeks and months to come. Our most up-to-date information will be posted to Facebook and then placed on this site.
