covid-19 status & updates
The time is finally here to share our beautiful tools of stress relief and self discovery, but we need to do it safely and we want time to adjust to our new normal and working conditions, so it will be a slow return to floating.
When you come to oGoFloat we want you to completely relax and not worry about anything - especially cleanliness. We want to tell you as much (or as little) about our cleaning procedures until you feel safe and at ease. Be prepared to RELAX HARDER at oGoFloat. We have a blog entry that details our full cleaning regime, which hasn’t changed much. We had strong disinfection practices since before it was cool.
As always, please reschedule your float if you have been sick within the last 2 weeks. This includes fever, chills, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, new muscle aches or headache, nausea, or unpleasant waste disposal symptoms. During these unique times we also ask that you wait 2 weeks after travel outside the Province or attending a large gathering.
These are the changes that you need to know about:
We have limited our hydration station. This means no more post float tea, and we encourage you to bring your own water bottle or purchase a Flow water ($2.50+gst) to avoid using a glass.
1 person at a time, or bubble buddies. Our studio is small, so we will only host 1 float at a time, unless you are a spouse, housemate, or otherwise content to breathe close contact air (a bubble buddy). Bring a bubble buddy and you will each receive $5 off the cost of a single float.
Reduced/amended hours. Floats will be available at 11:00am, 2:00pm, 5:00pm, and (sometimes) 8:00pm.
No long post float hang. This will be the hardest part for me because I love hanging out with you and hearing all about your float and what’s going on in your life, but long conversations increase the risk. We encourage you to take as much time as you need to feel safe, but to leave as soon as possible to allow for ample air exchange before the next person.
We will open gradually over the next few weeks giving priority to our club members first, and then those who had floats cancelled in March.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us during this time, especially those who have played Virtual Float Bingo on Monday nights. It’s been the highlight of our week spending time with you. From the bottom of our salty hearts, THANK YOU!
Stay well our floaty friends. We're stronger together.
Julie & Devon
