WHAT TO EXPECT FROM US (the sitters)
we are wearing masks inside client homes at all times (only exception is for sleepovers – see below)
we are using hand sanitizer before and after every single visit
sitters will not work if they have any symptoms and/or suspect they have been exposed (they will return to work only after a negative COVID test has been confirmed)
for vacation care, we are limiting each client to 1-2 sitters when possible to try and minimize the number of people inside your home
we are being responsible in our personal lives with mask-wearing, social-distancing, good hand-washing practices, etc.
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU (the client)
if you are experiencing any symptoms and/or suspect you have been exposed to COVID, PLEASE err on the side of caution and cancel your pet visits with us
cancellation fees will be waived in these situations as we greatly appreciate your cooperation in keeping our sitters safe & working!
if you are home for our weekly/daily walks, please maintain at least 6-foot social distancing, wearing a mask when possible
as much as we love socializing with our human clients when we see you, during these times, please do not be offended if we have to limit our interactions while indoors for safety reasons – we still love ya! :)
for new client meet 'n greets, please wear a mask and we will wear ours
OVERNIGHTS DURING COVID
We resumed overnight pet visits in July, and will continue to offer them with a few requirements for the safety of our sitters. These requirements will continue to change based on current public health guidance as this pandemic progresses. If you cannot meet these requirements, we are still happy to provide regular pet drop-in visits for your family in the meantime.
please put clean sheets on the bed & close the door to that room (we will bring our own pillow)
do not allow any other individuals into the house during the days for which we are overnighting (including housekeepers, family members, neighbors, contractors)
we will also bring our own Clorox wipes to wipe down common surfaces (door handles, light switches, faucet handles, etc)
COVID-19 (updated 8/7/20)
As the number of COVID cases rises in our community, we continue to take every precaution for both the safety & health of our clients, as well as our sitters and their families. We have taken the COVID-19 Certification course provided by Pet Sitters International (PSI), and we will continue to stay informed through the CDC website on current safety practices as they are updated. Jamie is providing current sitters (Anna and Annie B.) with necessary supplies, such as hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes.
