Southwest Utah Public Health Department Guidelines
for Hair & Nail Salons, Barbers, Tanning Salons, Massage, & Body Art Studios
Updated April 9, 2020
Utah’s State Public Health Directive recommends that individuals avoid the businesses & services listed above until further notice. If these businesses and services remain open, they should follow these guidelines:
- Consider appointment-only services.
- All employees should wash their hands frequently throughout the business day.
- Sanitizer should be available at each workstation and throughout the establishment.
- Lobbies and waiting areas should be closed; clients may wait in their vehicles until a station is ready.
- Social distancing (minimum of 6 feet between any people besides the worker and client) should be implemented between workstations.
- All chairs, tools, and supplies should be sanitized after serving each client.
- The establishment (including doors, lobbies, and high-touch surfaces) should be cleaned frequently.
- Management should ensure daily (and at the beginning of each shift) that no employees have symptoms of illness (including cough, fever, shortness of breath). Employees showing any signs of illness should not report to work or should be sent home immediately if they become symptomatic during the day.
- Cash payments are discouraged. Staff who handle cash or credit card payments should use cleaning measures between each transaction. Use online payment options when possible.
- Clients and customers should be screened by phone or in person before entering the establishment for any symptoms of illness and should be asked to reschedule if they are sick or have been ill recently. Clients over age 60 should be asked to postpone their visit until restriction are lifted.
