NY's changing Covid restrictions and what it means for the shop!

Good Wednesday everyone! 

As you may or may not be aware, NY has made some quick changes to its Covid restrictions for businesses and event spaces as of today. Aside from a few other things, the new updates also bring the state's mask-mandates into line with CDC recommendations.

That means that vaccinated people are no longer required to wear their masks while indoors. While that is most welcome, the state has also left it up to individual businesses to set their own rules. And to that end, Micciche Salon will be holding with its own mask requirements for now. 

We apologize for any inconvenience that this might cause. Please understand that the last thing we want to do is make life tougher for those who have gone to get vaccinated. But all the same, we are worried about the timing of this decision, and as you all know we always prefer to err on the side of caution.

Our mask-mandate will not be permanent though. We envision that it will stay in place only until July 1st. That is when NY's more wide-reaching repeal of Covid restrictions is set to activate. The spacing between now and then, just a little over a month (if you can believe it) will allow us to make sure that there is no surge of new cases from the rule repeal. Once we ditch the mask rule, we would like for it to stay ditched.

So again, we hope that you understand, and we look forward to the day that all of this will be behind us for good.

Thank you,

Jason

Huge news today, as NYC will be re-opening 100% on July 1st!

Good afternoon everyone! 

It's a terrific day, and one that we've been waiting quite a while for. This morning Mayor de Blasio announced that NYC (which includes Queens of course) would be fully opened, and that the city's businesses either will begin or be returned to 100% as of July 1st, 2021!

This has been a long time coming, and we are excited to once again be able to serve our terrific clientele as they've become accustomed to. As we prepare for this grand re-opening, there are some things to keep in mind. Namely, we do not yet know exactly what this comeback will look like.

Though the mayor has said things will be getting back to normal, we do not know the status of mask-mandates, social distancing, etc. It could be that some of these special measures will still be in place. But even if things like masks and enhanced cleaning protocols are to be dissolved officially, we will be tailoring some of those policies for continued use.

Micciche Salon has made preparations for a special masked area, cut off from the rest of the shop, which will continue to be used post-pandemic. Additionally, we will continue our between-guests station cleanings as they are now. We want every one of guests to be safe and comfortable going forward!

No doubt we will have much more to add on all of the above as we proceed to July 1st, so watch for updates on our facebook page, and here on our official blog. In the meantime though, get ready for what the Mayor has called "the summer of New York City"!

Closing for 2 weeks, as we are in a designated orange zone

Hello again everyone, we have an update today on yesterday’s social media post about covid-related business closures in Forest Hills.

While we had initially thought that we would be mostly unaffected, we learned this morning that the news is less positive. As of today, all salons in the area will have to close for a period of two weeks. This includes Micciche of course.
If you have an appointment scheduled for any dates included, you will be receiving a call today to reschedule. Yes, we are doing re-schedulings!
Keep in mind that the current situation is a very different one than the one that we faced in March. As such we are as confident as we can be that this newest pause will not be a protracted one, and we will be back to see you all beginning on the 22nd.
However, please also be aware also that our booking desk will be closed during this time. It will not reopen until the shop does, so any and all questions or appointment requests should be emailed to info@miccichesalon.com, or messaged via Facebook.
Thank you, take care, and we will see you soon

Reservation request list is closing soon!

Hello everyone!
Wow! Your response to our request program was stunning and well beyond what we had envisioned. 
As you’re likely aware, that amazing response has slowed down return booking calls. Nevertheless, we will get to everyone as soon as possible, even if it means while we are open. As long as you are on the request list, you will receive a call!
As you also probably are aware, this Tuesday we will indeed be back in action! We are excited to be coming back to see you all! 
With the amount of people who are already waiting for their booking calls though, our imminent reopening means that we must close our reservation request list. So as of 11:59pm tonight, we will no longer be taking new requests via email. 
Again though, your response was incredible, and we couldn’t be more thankful to all of you for making our return a grand one.
We will see you Tuesday!

List members should expect calls!

Hello everyone! 
A quick update for you today - confirmation calls are going out as of last week! If you have added your name to our reservation request list (if not, email us at info@miccichesalon.com!), then you should be receiving a telephone call to set up your appointment shortly. 
Be aware that, during the call, you will be informed of new regulations that we still believe will be in place for the week of the 6th. Those include wearing masks at all times while in the shop, refraining from bringing guests with you during your visit, and arriving as close as possible to your appointment time.
These new rules might seem bothersome, but please remember that they are there for the safety of all. And it is because of them that we can get back to what we all want to do!
We will see you all soon!
