TEMPORARY CLOSED STARTING MAY 9th

The Alberta provincial government has again forced our float center to stop operations after Sunday May 9th for a minimum of three (3) weeks.
 
Our intention is to open as soon as we possibly can. We will provide an update on reopening through the website, social media and newsletter.
 
Take care, Dominic

OUR COVID APPROACH

This era of COVID significantly changed how businesses needed to approach cleanliness, sanitation and how to handle social distancing.
 
Fortunately for our float centre, I am proud to share that we did not have to change much in how we have been operating beyond adding a few extra touch points.
 
Our float rooms and common areas have always needed to be consistently safe and clean from the first day we opened, so when COVID struck, only a few adjustments were required to ensure we were doing our part in preventing the spread of COVID. 
 
Just like we have been doing for the last four years, our float rooms are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between every float. Our float cabin filtration system uses a global industry standard to disinfect and sanitize the water between every floater for a minimum of twenty minutes. This system includes a combination of particle filters, ozone injection, ultraviolet light and hydrogen peroxide. With respect to air circulation of the float cabins and within the entire space, our industrial HRV (heat recovery ventilator) unit provides continous passive air flow as it removes humid interior air and replaces it with fresh air.
To give you further confidence in floating at this time, it's also worth mentioning that the CDC has officially stated that there is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through recreational water.
 
While many of the below COVID protocols are familiar, we have also implemented additional measures that are designed to compliment the flow of our operations and honour the intention of the practice and space.
 
We thank you for taking a moment to review them all prior to floating with us.


  • Please arrive no earlier than five minutes before your scheduled float (first time visitors are still asked to arrive twenty minutes early for orientation).

 

  • If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms, please preemptively reschedule your float. Anyone showing up to a scheduled float exhibiting any signs or symptoms will be rebooked.

 

  • Anyone that has recently travelled on a plane or been in close contact with someone who has tested positive is requested to wait 14 days before joining us for a float. 

 

  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout the centre.

 

  • Please honour social distancing during your visit in all common areas. This is very easy for us considering that we rarely have more than eight people within our 1,900 sqft centre and with the exception of our team, everyone else will be isolated in their own private float rooms. 

 

  • Please wear whatever mask you are most comfortable with in all common areas. We are not providing any masks in an effort to reduce unnecessary waste.

 

  • Anyone exempt from wearing a mask is welcomed and expected to honour social distancing while in the common areas.

 

  • Our team will be wearing a mask while sharing space in the common areas.

 

  • Our vanity area amenities have been reduced to include only makeup remover, q-tips, tissues and a hairdryer (available by request to ensure it is sanitized in between uses). You are welcome to bring any personal amenities that you will require following your float.

 

  • The post-float lounge is still open for distanced seating, however our tea offering, books and other basic amenities have been removed temporarily. We will re-introduce these items when it is safe to do so.

 

  • Please dispose of any waste, such as used vaseline packets, in the hallway garbage.

 

 One of the main purposes for our float centre is to escape the anxiety and stress of the outside world. When our customers visit us for a float, I wanted to ensure that our COVID measures did not trigger anyone's anxiety any further, so our measures have been deliberately designed to be as gentle and effective as possible.
 
Much care and consideration has been used in crafting our approach to COVID. If you have any specific questions about our protocols and operations, please email edmonton@floathouse.ca.
 
I thank you for your help and cooperation in doing your part to keep our space clean and safe for yourself, our team and your fellow floaters.
 
Take care, Dominic :)

  • In an effort to allow as much time for water filtration and cleaning the rooms, the total time floating will be closer to 70 minutes in duration to accommodate these initatives.
