Your guide to PROTECTING yourself at the spa<br /> What you need to know<br /> Many of us go to the spa* to relax and get pampered. Most spas work hard to make sure their clients enjoy a safe service. However, there are many ways that serious infections can be<br /> spread at the spa if proper steps to prevent infections are not taken. These infections include Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV and skin and nail fungus.<br /> About this guide<br /> The Be Spa Safe guide was developed to explain how infections can spread during spa services and what you can do to reduce your risk. It reviews York Region Public Health’s role to inspect<br /> spas and explains how you can check the latest inspection reports of your favourite places before you go. It also includes six easy checklists of things to look for before you receive a manicure, pedicure, facial, waxing, hairdressing or ear piercing. Be sure to review the checklists before your next visit to the spa.<br /> Be Spa Safe<br /> *In t<a title="Be Spa Safe Guide page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/2a5ae1ad?page=1">Your guide to PROTECTING yourself at the spa</a> <a title="Be Spa Safe Guide page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/2a5ae1ad?page=2"> </a> <a title="Be Spa Safe Guide page 3" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/2a5ae1ad?page=3">What you need to know Many of us go to the spa*</a> <a title="Be Spa Safe Guide page 4" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/2a5ae1ad?page=4">The spa industry Spas in York Region are not li</a> <a title="Be Spa Safe Guide page 5" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/2a5ae1ad?page=5"> </a> <a title="Be Spa Safe Guide page 6" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/2a5ae1ad?page=6">How infections can spread Spas serve many clien</a> <a title="Be Spa Safe Guide page 7" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/2a5ae1ad?page=7">Spa tools Not all spa tools should be treated t</a> <a title="Be Spa Safe Guide page 8" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/2a5ae1ad?page=8">1.
