Directives on re-opening of Personal Care Services

Directives on re-opening of Personal Care Services

1. We refer to the above as well as the directives for the re-opening of personal care services, issued by the Minister for Small Business Development on Friday 19 June 2020 (“the directives”)
2. The directives make it clear that the specified businesses in the personal care industry may only re-open once they have ensured full compliance with the directives applicable to the specific business. For each type of business, a specific standard operating procedure is set out, which applies to the business, its employees and its customers. It is furthermore made clear that these directives do not replace existing regulations and directives, such as those applying to workplaces, but these directives are merely complementary to the existing regulations.
3. The following businesses are provided for in the directives, both in the formal and informal spheres:
3.1. Hairdressing;
3.2. Barbering;
3.3. Nail and toe treatment;
3.4. Facial treatment and make-up;
3.5. Body massage; and
3.6. Tattooing and body piercing.
