Safety Steps for Just Around the Corner Employees and Clients to take to Reduce Exposure Risk for Coronavirus
Our goal at Just Around the Corner is the safety of your family, your pet, and our employees. We ask for your help to institute the following:
- If an employee feels ill they will notify the office immediately, and steps will be taken to reschedule their visits
- If a client or member of their household is ill, they will notify the office and steps will be taken to cancel their visits
Personal Protective Equipment and Sanitation:
- Pet Sitters will wear masks when entering a client’s home
- Pet Sitters will sanitize their hands before entering and on leaving a client’s home
- Pet Sitters will sanitize anything touched during the visit. This will include keys, phones, collars and harnesses, doorknobs
- If a client will be home, please let us know. The Dog Walker will text to let the client know when they will arrive. Please bring the dog to the door, and the Dog Walker will take them from you.
- In case of sudden illness and to minimize contact between employees, clients will need to have either a lockbox with a key or a door code entry to their home.
- No notes will be left in the home. Employees will communicate with owners through the Chat Feature of the Power Pet Sitter Mobile App.
- All new clients will receive an initial consultation. During this time we will meet with you and your pet(s) and gather information regarding your pet’s regular routine so that we can provide the best care to your pets while you are away from home.
- We will review all necessary paperwork including house key options and emergency contact information. We will explain our services and answer any questions you may have.
- Our Online Software PowerPetSitter will be available for you to access prior to our initial consultation so you can fill out as much as possible about your pets and home.
