PERSONAL SERVICES REQUIRING THE REMOVAL OF A CUSTOMER’S FACE COVERING ARE ALLOWED, UNDER THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS:
ALL PROCEDURES requiring a customer to remove his/her mask must be performed by a single attendant wearing a mask that completely covers the nose and mouth and a face shield that extends below the chin.
Employees who for medical reasons or otherwise cannot wear a source control mask or face shield cannot perform these services.
TIME-LIMITED PROCEDURES (e.g. procedures that can be completed in a few minutes like beard trimming, limited facial waxing, piercing, etc.) can be performed provided removal of the customer’s mask only occurs for the time necessary to complete the procedure on the parts of the face covered by the mask. For example, if upper lip and eyebrow waxing is to occur, the mask may be removed only for the portion of the service that involves the upper lip and must remain on for the other portions.
EXTENDED-TIME PROCEDURES (e.g. services that take more than just a few minutes to perform such as facials, make-up services, facial tattooing, electrolysis, etc.) can be performed provided removal of the customer’s mask only occurs during the active time of the service. Customers must wear facial coverings inside the spa until the service begins and must be replaced immediately after the procedure is finished. These procedures must be performed in a completely separate room with doors closed and are limited to one attendant and one customer per room. A 15-minute vacancy period must be provided for individual rooms in between customers to allow for appropriate cleaning, disinfection, and air exchange inside the space.
