Fayez Spa has been operating under strict COVID-19 policies and protocols provided by our Ministry of Health since the beginning of the pandemic and we continue to do so to ensure the health and safety of our family, clients and team. All clients and staff members must adhere to all COVID-19 protocols in place, but this does not include stating whether or not a vaccine has been administered.
As the COVID-19 vaccination is a personal medical decision, not mandated by our Provincial Government, we will not be asking clients or staff members, their vaccination status as this is personal health information, which is confidential. We will not be disclosing our staff member’s confidential health information. We can confirm that all staff are screened on a daily basis before being permitted to enter the workplace.
Therefore, if at any time anyone feels unsafe to visit our spa environment, we completely understand if they wish to postpone their visit until a time when they feel it is safe.
Pre-screening, deep cleaning and sanitization, hand washing and physical distancing are being implemented as part of our health & safety protocols. It is also vitally important that you feel comfortable and free of anxiety during your visit. While we can take steps to make you feel safe, we cannot guarantee your safety.

ACCESSIBILITY CUSTOMER SERVICE POLICY for Persons with a Disability
Certification Number 43526
The goal of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (the “Act”) Regulation 429/07 is to create a more accessible Ontario, by identifying, and to the extent possible, preventing, and eliminating barriers experienced by persons with a disability. A standard for customer service (“the Standard”) has been established under the Act to ensure goods and services are, where at all possible, equally accessible to every member of the public.
At Fayez Spa, we are committed to providing a barrier-free environment for our customers. The purpose of this policy, therefore, (the “Policy”) is to ensure that we meet the requirements of the Standard and promote its underlying core principles, described below.
The Policy applies to all Fayez Spa employees, who deal with members of the public or other third parties. This includes our employees, agents and contractors.

TIPS FOR GUIDING A CUSTOMER WITH VISION LOSS
The following are instructions and tips on guiding a customer with vision loss.
- Ask first if your customer wishes to be guided.
- If the answer is “yes”, offer your arm. Ask which arm is better. Walk at a normal pace. The person will walk about a step behind. Announce handrails, doors (to the right/left, push/pull to open etc.) and describe the surrounding areas (such as what is in an aisle, shelves and sections).
- If you are guiding towards stairs:
- Let the customer know if s/he has to walk up or down;
- Approach the stairs head on, not at an angle and come to a full stop in front of the stairs;
- Lead or guide your customer to the rail side to allow him/her to take hold of it;
- Let him/her find the first step and then start to climb or descend the stairs;
- Try to be one step ahead and announce the last step.
- If you are going through a narrow doorway, passage etc., the guide goes first, after explaining the circumstances and describing the area.
- Upon entering a room, offer to describe the dimensions and the location of people and furniture.
- If the person wishes to sit, offer to guide him/her and place his/her hand on the back of the chair.
- Keep the person informed when others approach or leave.
- If you must leave the individual alone, do not leave him or her standing in the middle of the room, with nothing to hold onto. If he/she is not seated, guide him/her to a door, wall, or piece of furniture to stand next to. This will help the person to stay spatially oriented.
- If your customer is accompanied by a guide dog, stand to the right of your customer, as the guide dog is usually at the owner’s left side. When guiding a customer with a dog, offer your left arm, but if the person you are guiding prefers to hold your right arm, that’s okay too.
- When the customer has a guide dog, offer to open the door first, before doing so. The
- Customer may be using the door’s location as a reference point, or he/she may prefer to do it without assistance to protect the dog’s paws

- Confirm that your customer is ready to move;
- Describe what you are going to do before you do it;
