Government allows reopening of businesses including beauty salons, nail bars and tattoo studios

Summary

Beauty salons, nail bars, tattoo and massage studios, physical therapy businesses and spas across England can reopen from 13 July 2020. Updated guidance sets out the measures that businesses providing close contact services should follow to protect staff and customers. Only services that do not involve work in the highest risk zone – directly in front of the face – should be made available to clients.

Where 2 metres social distancing cannot be maintained, the person providing the service should wear further protection in addition to any that they may usually wear. This should include a clear visor that covers the face. Other measures include using screens or barriers to separate clients;, appointment only booking systems, keeping activity time down to a minimum, sufficient spacing between customers, and more.
