COVID-19 Policies | Brows & Co.
While we cannot eliminate all possible risks inherent with public space and contact during services, our goal is to minimize the possible risks, provide for social distancing (besides when receiving services), and adhere to recommended guidelines. The rules below are in place for the safety of both our clients and our staff.
If anyone is uncomfortable coming in during this crisis, we understand and ask that you let us know in advance.
While the studio and its staff will follow safety guidelines and regulations, and make a best-faith effort to minimize risks at the studio, any client receiving services at the studio does so with the understanding there are inherent risks involved with Coronavirus and other contagious diseases in an indoor, public space.
Beyond adhering to regular and standard common-sense hygiene practices, we are also implementing the following practices:
