Space and Nature
Relaxation in the heart of nature is at the core of everything we do. We have significantly reduced the number of guests experiencing the spa at any one time in order to open up space in common areas indoors. Our outdoor amenities have been reorganized to maintain 2 metre physical distancing. To encourage more relaxation, our solariums and lounges have been reorganized to permit 2 metres between guests. Guests are also limited to groups of 2 people preferably from the same household or in a limited social bubble.

What hygiene measures and sanitary guidelines will be implemented?
Our cleaning and disinfection protocol have always exceeded the requirements of health authorities. Every day operations is focused on water quality and cleaning of the high traffic areas. Overall building maintenance and cleaning of all indoor and outdoor areas are disinfected daily.
In addition to regular cleaning, new disinfection procedures have been added to increase the sanitation of frequently touched surfaces such as lockers, seating, door handles, and handrails.
Our Baths are treated with health-approved levels of chlorine & bromine. Treated water is a low risk for virus and bacteria transmission. Water quality control tests are preformed twice as frequently as required by local health authorities, to ensure that the water quality is optimal during all hours of operation. In addition, an independent company conducts water tests every two weeks.
What enhanced hygiene protocols should we expect?
– Hand sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the site, including entrances and exits.
– High traffic areas at check-in including tablets and pin pads are sanitized after each Guest.
– Locker rooms are frequently disinfected by dedicated attendants.
– All Guests are required to shower before and after their massage and/or entrance to the Baths.
– Two towels are provided to guests during their visit. Guests are required to sit on a towel in relaxation areas and will be monitored by our staff to ensure that each guest always has a towel on site.
– Massage Rooms undergo detailed cleaning after each treatment as per College of Massage Therapists of Ontario requirements and in accordance to public health standards.
Will you be assessing the health of guests and staff members?
We have always encouraged employees to stay home if they are unwell. We are now actively screening all employees in advance of their shift and after 4 hours at the Spa, in accordance with instructions from Grey Bruce Public Health.
All Guests are also health screened prior to entering the interior reception area and are required to complete an electronic waiver form at check-in that includes health and safety questions as well as contract tracing information. Guests may also be given a temperature check upon arrival or in advance of massage treatment.
Massage Guests are required to fill out an additional COVID-19 health form in advance of their treatment.
How will physical distancing be implemented?
The overall number of guests on-site at all times has been reduced to less than 40% of pre-COVID capacity. In order to respect a minimum distance of two meters per guest, staggered check-ins and locker room access has been implemented. All areas of the indoor and outdoor Scandinavian Baths Hydrotherapy activity include signage with capacity limitations and are monitored by our staff.
Due to reduced capacity and the importance of maintaining physical distancing, groups of 2 people maximum are permitted to experience the spa together. No exceptions can be made until further notice.
New signage reminds guests of physical distancing protocols as well as other important health and safety measures.
What if a guest is sick?
The spa will refuse check-in to any person who is symptomatic, has recently traveled outside of Canada or who has been exposed to someone with a suspected, probable, or confirmed case of COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
Registered Massage Therapists will also refuse treatment to a guest that has any symptoms, traveled outside of Canada or who has been exposed to someone with a suspected, probable, or confirmed case of COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
Can I still enjoy the experience with a friend or spouse?
The Scandinave Spa experience is still a relaxing outdoor activity to enjoy with a friend, partner or family member. We have limited group access to a maximum of 2 people.
The layout of our outdoor and indoor relaxation areas have been reconfigured to permit 2 meters distance from other guests. We ask all guests to be respectful of other guests experience and their space.
Please note, we are unable to offer DUO massage treatments until further notice.
Is wearing a mask mandatory?
Grey Bruce Public Health have made wearing a mask or face covering mandatory in indoor public places. All guests are required to wear a mask while indoors during their visit. Masks are mandatory for guests and Registered Massage Therapists during massage treatments.
While masks are not mandatory outdoors in the Baths activity, we strongly recommend all guests have their mask available to wear outdoors, especially if you are face-to-face with another guest within the safe two metres distance. We recommend guests bring their own mask for optimal comfort and fit.
