Since its inception, Wellness Jar Medical Spa has adhered to the strictest of standards for cleanliness and infection control. In addition to our cleaning and sanitizing protocols each day, we use sub-micron particle air filters along with EPA registered anti-microbial surface protectant.

The patented BioProtectUs system of cleaning and disinfection used at our facility not only kills all viruses and bacteria, it protects surfaces for an extended period of time which further protects patients and staff in between our normal cleaning and disinfecting protocols. Our level of cleaning and sanitation along with indoor air quality are in line with pharmaceutical clean rooms which is the highest standard of this kind. In the interest of all our patients and staff, we do request that any patients who are exhibiting symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or breathing difficulties should still refrain from coming into our facility and practice social distancing as directed by the CDC.
