As of December 6, 2020 at 10 pm, all personal care services must stop operations.
Prepare to reopen
Operate as much as you can outdoors. Post a checklist of ventilation methods you’re using.
Screen customers for COVID-19 symptoms when they come in.
Make sure everyone can stay 6 feet apart. Set up chairs and stations at least 6 feet apart. You can use plexiglass dividers to protect customers and workers.
If you use fans, place them so that air doesn’t blow from one customer’s space to another. Avoid services that involve lengthy blow drying.
Everyone must wear face coverings. Customers can only take off their face coverings if they’re getting a service done on their face. This includes facials, face waxing, and trimming beards or mustaches. Body art around the nose and mouth area are still not allowed.
Have workers only serve one customer at a time, unless the procedure takes a long time.
Do not offer food or drink to customers.
Disinfect all items and stations between customers, including linens. You can also use disposable items.
Workers who touch customers must wear new disposable gloves between customers.
Outdoor services have other requirements
You must set up your outdoor service in a space controlled by a licensed business. You can set up tents or temporary structures outside. Make sure air can flow freely through every area, including corners. No more than one side can be closed. See State guidelines about temporary structures for outdoor businesses.
Do not block streets or sidewalks. You can apply to use the sidewalk, parking lane, or a private lot for your business.
Personal care services that involve needles are not allowed outdoors. These include tattoos, piercing, electrology, microblading, or permanent makeup.
Hair services that involve rinsing out the hair are not allowed outdoors. These include shampooing, color, and chemical treatments.
