Health + Safety Guidelines

We have created the below Happy Melon Health & Safety Guidelines – details of which include social distancing measures, cleaning & hygiene practices, in-house behaviours and emergency follow-up procedures. These are our Phase One guidelines and they will continue to be updated as we go. Please familiarise yourself with each section as we will be asking everyone who joins us in studio to adhere to these guidelines closely. Happy Melon is committed to providing a safe studio environment for our clients and our team. This information is subject to change in accordance with the most up-to-date government recommendations surrounding COVID-19. Thank you for your cooperation. We can’t wait to see you in studio soon.
