Nail salons can offer manicures and pedicures outside. Other services like massages, body waxing and threading are also now allowed outdoors.

Those personal care services have to follow the above guidelines, as well as:

  • Workers should wear a face shield with a face covering when doing services on the face/neck that don't allow clients to wear a mask
  • Disposable gloves should be worn during the entire service
  • Use single-use applicators instead of reusable ones (where necessary)
  • Ask manicure clients to use hand sanitizer first
  • Allow only one manicurist to work at a single station
  • Offer color palettes instead of nail polish color displays
