PROOF OF VACCINATION CLARIFICATION
At this time Personal Service Establishments are not mandated to accept proof of vaccination upon entry or booking.
So we will NOT be requiring proof of vaccination as of Sept.13 2021
To view a complete list of industries that were mandated to ask for proof of vaccination, please visit the gov't website: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/vaccinecard.html
As per Dr. Bonnie Henry, rate of transmission in personal service establishments remain low, so we have remained open since the first lockdowns were lifted in 2020.
Mint Smilebar has not had a single COVID outbreak amongst clients and staff since the beginning of the pandemic and follow all recommendations from WCB and Health Authorities very diligently.
We are monitoring this closely and will keep you updated with any new developments.
DISINFECTION & SANITATION:
We will continue to use medical grade disinfectants. Our disinfectant is approved by Coastal Health and fights against the human coronavirus. Our floors are bleached daily. High volume and frequently touched areas such as door handles, will be sanitized multiple times a day. Everything we use for the service is SINGLE USE and disposable, we do not reuse anything. Teeth whitening stations, sinks and treatment room will be sanitized and disinfected after each use.
We have always asked clients to wash/sanitize their hands prior to the start of each session and we will continue to do so. Please make sure to wash/sanitize your hands after you use the bathroom. Sink area (for teeth whitening): Please wash your hands after you rinse. A cup is provided for you, please don't use your hands for rinsing.
Consent forms must be completed online before you arrive for your appointment. A link to our consent form will be included in the appointment confirmation email. 24 hours before your appointment we will send a COVID self assessment questionnaire to confirm you are not experiencing any symptoms prior to the start of your appointment.
If you are experiencing symptoms, you would need to reschedule your appointment. You will not be charged the cancellation fee if you reschedule. Please be courteous and inform us, we are operating at limited capacity and there are people on wait list. We reserve the right to fill your spot if you are unable to make it.

It is located in the handicap washroom in the second floor, you must buzz the intercom, technician will provide you with a washroom pass. In an effort to keep the tenant washroom clean, please inform us if it’s unsanitary, so we can send cleaners up to clean it.
