Spa XS have just updated their website with a list of new rules one must follow (if and when they re-open)
COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death., Guests with underlying medical conditions, compromised immune systems, and senior citizens are especially vulnerable.
There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people gather. By visiting Spa Excess, guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
Watch video here (for all the upgraded they have made to the premises) – then read the entire list of Spa XS new rules (it is LONG below)
The safety and well-being of our guests and staff remain Spa Excess’s top priority. Upon reopening, we will be subject to certain restrictions at the direction of health experts and government officials. Certain amenities and services may be modified, have limited availability or may remain closed.
We ask that everyone be patient as we navigate these temporary rules and restrictions.

Randomly, customers may be asked to take a test for oxygen levels via an oximeter. This is to test for Invisible Hypoxia which can be present in asymptomatic people. If the reading is below 90 the customer will be asked if they have asthma or COPD to determine if that condition may be the cause of the low reading. The oximeters will be disinfected after each use. The test is random as we only have 3 oximeters.
Hand sanitizers are available at the front desk, exit, dark areas, locker room and second floor hallway, basement area, and all washrooms.
All Spa XS guests using the gym equipment must wipe down the equipment after each use.
We encourage customers to use tap debit or credit.

Signs are installed in each washroom reminding customers that washing with soap kills the virus. Wash genital and pubic areas well after sex.
