In a press release released on Monday, the Association points out that when the rules governing the opening of businesses according to color zones in the fall were put in place, the spas had the right to maintain their activities.
“Knowing that spas are well-being and health establishments, visited mainly by single people and couples; that users seek above all to isolate themselves from one another and communicate little with each other; that the temperature and relative humidity conditions found in spas contribute to inactivation of the virus, spa establishments do not understand this decision, ”argued the Association.
This organization also maintains that a variety of measures had been put in place by the owners of spas to respect the sanitary rules decreed by public health.
The organization has 57 members spread over 15 regions of Quebec.
