Masks are now optional for all Viva Day Spa + Med Spa guests.
Enhanced Safety Protocols
Viva Day Spa has elevated our already hyper clean, safety first protocols with expert guidance from: our medical director, Dr. Aisha White, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Texas Medical Board, Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation (TDLR), International Spa Association (ISPA), City of Austin, and State of Texas.
Our spa team has addressed every touchpoint in the Viva guest experience in detail. We thought it best to provide full transparency under the circumstances.
You’re in good hands with our professional, talented massage therapists, estheticians, nail technicians, and medical practitioners. Here’s what to expect during your treatment:
- Viva Day Spa staff will be wearing masks during treatments performed around the face, neck and décolleté.
- All service providers are required to wash their hands before and after every guest service.
- All treatment rooms are sanitized between each guest service, including surface areas and handles.
- As always, every guest service features fresh sheets, head cradle covers, and towels. All soft goods — linens, robes, towels, etc. — are laundered with hot water + bleach after use.
- Advanced air purifiers with HEPA filters have been added to each treatment room, which circulate the air and remove 99.97% of airborne particles.
The health and well-being of the Viva team is always our top priority. Our employee safety policies maximize their safety and yours.
- All Viva Day Spa + Med Spa staff have received COVID-19 specific training.
- Viva is providing personal protective gear to all team members including face masks.
- Employees must wash their hands frequently and diligently, per CDC guidelines.
- Service providers also change aprons between every guest service.
Cleaning & Common Space Measures
The standards for cleanliness and hygiene have always been industry-leading at Viva Day Spa + Med Spa. We’ve amped up the frequency and stringency of our cleaning protocols both in-room and in our common spaces — lobbies, retail areas, relaxation rooms, and staff areas.
- Viva Day Spa frequently cleans all surfaces, along with the most commonly touched objects like door handles. The cleaning solution is medical grade and kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.
- Hand sanitizer is available throughout the spa for guest and staff use
- All utensils are disposable, like cups and stir sticks. Snacks are not available for the time being.
We will continue to refine and fine-tune our safety processes as public health needs evolve. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to email or call (512) 300-2256. We look forward to (safely) taking care of you!
