  1. Only vaccinated clients are accepted for treatment at this time.

MIU Clinic Benefits of Being Up to Date
Travel and Avoiding Quarantine

We are following CDC recommendations for travel and quarantine policy.

  • Policy for clients “Up to Date” on their vaccination
    Clients traveling to Fairfield who are up to date do not have to quarantine upon arrival but will be tested before treatment.
  • Policy for vaccinated clients who are not “Up to Date”
    Step 1 – Upon arrival clients do a quarantine for 4 days before treatment starts. Quarantine means staying in an accommodation and not leaving.
    Step 2 – Clients are tested on morning of day 4 of quarantine
    Step 3 – Results are received by morning of day 5 and if negative client may start PK on Day 5

Up to Date status avoids cancellations due to positive test among staff or other clients

All clients and staff are vaccinated but from time to time there is a client or staff person that tests positive. When this happens:

  • The client or staff person is not allowed to return to the clinic and needs to quarantine.
  • According to CDC guidelines Up to Date clients and staff that might have come in contact with the positive individual may continue interaction with the public if no symptoms, tested and fully masked. Up to Date staff can continue to provide your treatment and Up to date Clients can continue their treatment

Cancellations with no refunds for clients not Up to Date


If a client has interaction with staff or another client that tests positive, and the client is not Up to Date,
the client will have to discontinue treatment and no refund will be granted.

If the client is Up to Date when experiencing exposure they may continue their treatment.


All clients qualifying for treatments must test negative for COVID on a PCR test within 3 days of starting panchakarma or day spa treatments. Clients must also test once a week if treatment duration is longer than one week.

PCR testing is offered through test Iowa kits that can be obtained at the Clinic. Test Iowa is a free service.



Staff must complete a full regimen of an approved COVID vaccination at least 2 weeks before treatment starts.

  • Two-dose vaccines: Both doses must be completed at least 2 weeks prior to panchakarma or day spa treatments.
  • One-dose vaccine(s): Must be completed at least 2 weeks prior to panchakarma or day spa treatments.


All staff will be tested on a weekly basis and will require a negative test result prior to administering treatments.
If staff have any exposure to a positive COVID tested individual they will not be allowed to offer treatment unless they are “Up to Date”

Up to Date

Staff are required to be vaccinated but are not required to be Up to Date.
If a staff person has exposure to an individual who test positive and the staff person is not Up to Date they may not continue to offer treatment

Clients and staff must be free of symptoms in the previous two weeks before receiving or giving treatment.
