You can hire people to work in your home, but not near you
Housekeepers, chefs, and other services provided inside people’s homes can work. There are different rules for in-home childcare and tutoring.
You cannot hire people to come to your home if they cannot stay 6 feet away, like hairstylists or massage therapists.
Check everyone’s health before the visit
You and your service providers should check their health before the visit. If either of you feels sick, do not have the visit.
Minimize contact during the visit
If possible, you should either leave your home or go to another room while the service provider is there.
If possible, provide your own products for the service provider to use. Make sure any shared items are cleaned before and after the visit.
Air out your home
Open windows and doors.
You can get an air purifier, or make one. Tape a 20” by 20” air filter to the intake side of a 20-inch box fan, where air goes in.
