YPL Changes Studio Practices

Adjustments to Studio Policies and Practices

To begin, there’s no guidance or help at the federal level on what exactly businesses should be doing to alleviate COVID virus transmission. Nothing about equipment or disinfectants that could be used, let along information on how to use them. And there’s precious little advice from the state either.

Having researched available sanitizing equipment and techniques, YPL is confident the new changes and enhanced hygienic practices we’ve put in place — sanitizing, masking, filtering, distancing — will keep exposure to a minimum. Above all, frequent and thorough handwashing stops contact transmitted COVID in its tracks, while distancing and masking drastically interrupt airborne transmission. Continue reading

As we prepare to reopen with new client protocols in place and even higher standards of hygiene, it might be helpful to review the most basic, easiest, and most effective method for interrupting the COVID virus — handwashing.

The Center for Disease Control website explains the reasons behind handwashing, how to effectively achieve the intended results, and a note on hand sanitizers. To use a common reference, this isn’t rocket science, yet handwashing is certainly the simplest, and perhaps the most effective method for destroying the COVID virus. Thanks to nature, the way the virus is built leaves it vulnerable to simple soap and water.

Soap And Water Are Ruthless Towards Viruses

It’s important to understand the different results achieved with handwashing using soap and water, and the use of hand sanitizers. Soap and water — the water temperature doesn’t matter — destroys the coronavirus outer envelope, does so quickly, and is broadly effective when simple rules for length of time and method of washing are followed. Handwashing can and will help protect you against acquiring COVID through contact transmission.
