Dear Monkey Dooz and MDz Teen Families,
We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: We LOVE you and our community and want to keep our community safe. Thank you for your patience and support during these challenging times. Monkey Dooz has been working diligently to gather necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and update our procedures and policies to be compliant with the WA State Department of Health’s Directive for safe operations for you and our staff.
Before you step foot in the salon, our employees will have had to fill out a health screening at the beginning of every shift.
Below is a brief outline what a visit to Monkey Dooz will now look like.
*Before entering please text 509.350.2770 your child’s name and what time your appointment is for. The receptionist will then let you know when you can enter the building.
*Upon arrival our receptionist or a stylist will be checking your temperature and the temperature of your child or teen.
*We request that siblings who do not have an appointment do not accompany you to the appointment. If no other arrangements can be made for their care, we understand. We are Moms too.
*Only 1 parent or guardian will be allowed in the salon with a child. We are adhering to what the occupancy limit is for the salon.
*We are requiring that you and any child aged 5 and older wear a mask to your appointment, if you do not have a mask, one will be provided by our staff. Please be aware we have a limited supply of masks so if at all possible we request that you bring your own mask.
*We have hand sanitizer we will ask you to use when you enter the salon. If you are uncomfortable using hand sanitizer, you will be asked to wash your hands and oversee washing of your children’s hands for the recommended 20 seconds.
*You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth.
*Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between clients and to allow a full cleaning procedure between clients. This will mean fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
*Your child will don a new cape and the stylist will be wearing a new apron, both of which will be disposed of in between each patient unless there are multiple members of the same household being seen by the same stylist.
*We ask if at all possible to pay with a debit or credit card or Apple Pay to minimize cash handling.
*We have had to raise prices to be able to operate in this new environment. Free Bang Trims will be no longer be offered. Toddler Tuesday Special has been suspended.
With all of our love and care, The Monkey Dooz Crew
