GUIDANCE FOR COSMETOLOGY SALONS AND COSMETOLOGY SCHOOL CLINICS

Permitted to Operate During the Green Phase to Ensure the Safety and Health of Employees, Students and the Public

(issued 6-14-2020; updated 10-15-2020; updated 4-4-2021; rescinded 5-25-2021)

On 5/13/21, the CDC provided guidance that fully vaccinated individuals can resume activities that they did prior to the pandemic without wearing a mask or physically distancing except where required by law, rule, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. Therefore, businesses are to follow CDC guidance, and the previous "Guidance for Cosmetology Salons and Cosmetology School Clinics Permitted to Operate During the Green Phase to Ensure the Safety and Health of Employees and the Public" has been rescinded.

PLEASE NOTE WITH REGARD TO MASKING: The masking requirement will still be in place for unvaccinated individuals until 70 percent of Pennsylvanians age 18 and older are fully vaccinated. See the Department of Health press release

Additional information for businesses regarding CDC guidance may be found here.

The Department of Health continues to strongly encourage all businesses, school activities, and individual Pennsylvanians to follow existing CDC guidance  to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, including implementing physical distancing, practicing hand hygiene, and other strategies.
