Personal Protective Equipment
To help maintain safety during the COVID-19, Groomit has provided protective equipment (i.e. masks, gloves, and shoe protections) to groomers.
Groomers will wear masks/facial coverings, shoe covers, and/or gloves during grooming as an enhanced safety measure. Clients may share special cleanliness requests prior to the groomer arriving at their home. We ask that for in-home services, clients to keep social distancing and wear face masks.
Groomit Groomers are following CDC guidelines on Social Distancing, hand-washing or using hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol content. Groomers are asked to remove shoes upon entering homes or use shoe covers and wash hands thoroughly prior to beginning each treatment. Groomers are asked to disinfect equipment between customers.
Each day when providers open the Groomit Groomer app, they are asked to confirm that they do not display any symptoms of COVID-19 or other infectious illnesses. They are also encouraged to do daily temperature checks. Groomit asks that clients refrain from booking an in-home treatment if they or a household member are under an isolation or quarantine order/directive, or if they have a fever, COVID-19 symptoms, or a communicable illness.
