Yes, it is time for Face Masks For All from tomorrow, the 24th July! As you would expect we are continuing to follow the UK Government rules and regulations. This means that we do require you to wear a face mask during your visit to Reflex Spinal Health.
Any type of face covering will do. If you forget to bring your face covering with you please don’t worry. We will have single use masks for sale for £1.50 per mask. We may also have some of our bespoke Reflex Spinal Health masks for sale also for those of you desperate to be looking as cool as our front of house team! Prices of these is to be finalised, and initially we will have a limited supply! But just remember that it is face masks for all.
Our clinical team we still be wearing our PPE. This includes face mask, gloves and apron. Our chiropractors and osteopaths have been wearing this since returning to clinic in May.

“For example, there will be times when screens or visors are in use, or when a staff member is not in close proximity to people they do not normally meet, and so wearing a covering for staff will not be necessary. Employers should continue to follow COVID-19 secure guidelines to reduce the proximity and duration of contact between employees.”
You do not need to wear a face covering if you have a legitimate reason not to. This includes:
Hopefully the information above will be of use to you. Heaven knows that it has been pretty complicated trying to keep up to date with all the changes that the UK government release!
