The government announced that you can once again treat yourself at a spa wellness centre, and massage centres starting 1 October.

Of course, the staff and customers must all be fully vaccinated, not Covid-19 positive, have not been in close contact with someone with Covid-19, and do not show any symptoms.

The announcement was made via the 24 September update to the Phase 2 National Recovery Plan update.

It says that patrons may visit the facility through an appointment only. Walk-in customers are not allowed.

Although it is not written explicitly, we assume that the condition is in place so that the customers could test for Covid-19 and the business owners could prepare the necessary equipment.

The equipment needed includes disposable gloves, face covering, and face shield, which must be worn during the treatment or activity.

The SOP stipulates that the gloves, bedsheet, mattress, chair, and other equipment used in the process, including face shields, must be replaced or washed for each customer to prevent cross-contamination.

The owner of the premises must also ensure that the ventilation systems are maintained regularly.

These premises will be monitored by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC).

States currently in Phase 2 of the NRP are: Kelantan, Perak, Penang, Sabah, Melaka, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Johor.
