We know that our lives have been disrupted by the COVID pandemic, and we are grateful to all of you for the care you are taking to limit the spread in our community. Since we reopened in June we have been offering the same quality massage you have always expected of us and have implemented a number of changes to keep us all safe.
At the moment, the number of cases in Onondaga County has risen dramatically and our public officials have determined that massage therapists and Spas shall close effective November 25. We hope to be able to serve you in the near future. Please stay safe, avoid large gatherings, wear your mask around other people, and look out for one another! Working together we can drive these numbers back down, save lives, and get back to doing all the things we love - like getting a massage!!!
Once we are back open, we ask your cooperation as we work to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. To reduce the number of contacts with staff, appointments should be booked in advance and payments made online or by phone. You will be asked to update your health history form online, including a brief screening for your COVID-19 status. When you arrive, please wait in the parking lot until your therapist opens the door for you. Everyone must wear a mask. We will have plenty of sanitizer available for your hands. We’ve implemented many new safety measures to enhance sanitation in the spa, and are working on redirecting air flow to reduce chances of airborne transmission. Our menu will be limited. There will be no Hot Stone, Couples massage, or jacuzzi and sauna for the time being (sorry!). Our therapists will be tested for the coronavirus every two weeks.
We have lost nearly 30,000 people in New York State to this communicable disease. We mourn for every one of them. Let’s all keep doing our best to stay healthy and keep our neighbors safe. Welcome back to the new and improved Spa at 500.
