State releases guidance for reopening of nail salons and other personal care services

The California Department of Public Health on Friday released guidance for expanded personal services for counties with attestations, which includes personal care that requires touching a client's face, e.g. facials, electrolysis, and waxing.

This guidance also applies to esthetician, skin care, and cosmetology services; electrology; nail salons; body art professionals, tattoo parlors, and piercing shops; and massage therapy (in non-healthcare settings).

The recommended effective date of this guidance is no sooner than June 19.

These industries are not authorized to immediately reopen in Lake County, local officials reported.

Officials said this guidance includes stringent protections intended to support a safe, clean environment for workers and customers. For example, workers and customers at nail salons, tattoo parlors and massage businesses must wear face coverings.

This guidance is instructive on how businesses should operate during the COVID-19 pandemic, to reduce the risk of transmission. Local health officials should decide when the sectors covered by the guidance can resume operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 populations, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing.
