HCMC proposes Covid safety criteria for spa, massage parlors

Spa and massage parlors must satisfy 10 safety criteria to be allowed operations amid the "new normal," according to the department.

Requirements include mandatory medical declaration for both customers and employees, employees having either received at least one Covid-19 vaccine shot or recovered from the disease, and frequent mask changes and hand-washing.

Customers must either having been vaccinated with at least one vaccine shot, recovered from Covid-19 or test negative for the coronavirus within 72 hours. Customers must be spaced at least a meter apart.

Both customers and employees must have their body temperatures checked before going into facilities. Facilities must prepare disinfection methods like soap and hand sanitizers. Furnitures like beds, chairs and equipment must be disinfected regularly.

Facilities may operate at full capacity in areas with low coronavirus risks, and with reduced capacity in areas with higher risks.

Previously on November 11, HCMC allowed spa, massage parlors, bars and dance clubs to resume operation. But authorities shut them down two days later due to complicated coronavirus situation.

Spa, massage parlors, bars, dance clubs and other non-essential services in the city have been suspended for over half a year due to the pandemic.
