Covid-19 Pandemic Considerations

We at New Flower Studio care about our clients, staff, and the communities we all live and work in. At this time Los Angeles county, which includes Long Beach and Torrance, are under a stay-at-home order with a four phase plan for reopening businesses. Services like body piercing are non-essential and can’t be offered while maintaining social distancing. This places our business in phase three of the plan. We are currently in phase two and there is no known date for the beginning of phase three.

The decision to allow companies like ours to resume operation is made by the state of California, the county of Los Angeles, and the city of Long Beach as they see fit. We’re paying close attention to the information as updates are provided.

We’ll reopen our doors once the necessary health agencies allow it and our staff feels we have sufficient protocols in place for everyone’s safety. We’re also paying close attention to the Association of Professional Piercers as new protocols are being established specific to body piercing in the current pandemic.

Many of you have reached out to us during the stay-at-home order asking for appointments and house-calls for piercing services. Our studio has, and will, remain completely closed and all services will remain suspended until we’ve decided the timing is right and it’s allowed by the health department.

We understand people have different opinions of the pandemic and its risk management. When we finally reopen we’ll be grateful for your cooperation with the new way we provide services. The health and safety of everyone is important to us. This includes the health and safety of our staff. We promise to operate the safest possible studio. In return, we ask that our clients respect the new way we may be operating once open.
