Dear Buckhead Pet Pal Friends:
In light of the Shelter In Place order, we wanted to send another update as to how this will affect your services with Buckhead Pet Pals. Based on what was presented in the latest executive order, pet care visits will still be an allowed service. However, any client who is not comfortable having their Pet Sitter come to their home should feel free to cancel. We hope to see you back on a regular schedule sooner than later.
For clients that are out-of-town, reporting to work in essential jobs, or simply need help getting their pets exercised while they work from home, we will continue with visits as scheduled. For continuing visits, our standard common-sense Pet Sitter “cleanliness standards” are being followed as described below, along with additional measures as recommended by the CDC, like social distancing (6 feet or more) if a client is working from home during our visits. We are also happy to add any specific notes to visits with preferred procedures for social distancing. For example, we can pick up your pet from an area of the home where you are not present, or do a hand off at the door vs. performing in-home duties at this time, or we can even wipe door knobs and other high touch surfaces if you have wipes handy. Whatever you need, we are here for you.
Pet Sitter “Cleanliness”:
• Pet Sitters are being asked to use hand sanitizer upon entering each client home if you have some available as well as wash their hands during visits, as needed, and at the end of visits with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
• Pet Sitters are being asked to avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands, as well as covering their nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. If a tissue isn’t available, coughing or sneezing should be done into an elbow or sleeve vs. into their hands.
• If a Pet Sitter is sick, they are being asked to call in so coverage can be arranged with another Pet Sitter.
We are also continuing to ask that you notify us if someone in your home is ill and to cancel services to limit exposure to our team. To date, we have had no cases with any of our pet sitters, and no one has been in direct contact with anyone with a known case of COVID-19. We will reach out should any future concerns arise.
We appreciate all of the support we have received during this unprecedented event and truly will miss seeing some of our daily clients during this time. Hopefully this Shelter In Place order will help shorten the time before we will see all of our pet sitters on a more routine, normal schedule.
