      Confused about the government mandated closures for Spas.

      We are a day spa that has Licensed Cosmetologists and Massage Therapists.
      The building has a Salon License. This is a grey area for sure, I don’t want to stop working but I also don’t want to break any laws.

      Does anyone have any clarity/answers on this? Anyone going through the same issue?

        Lisa, thank you for responding!
        so hair only?
        this is the grey area too because I also do manis/ pedis /facials … I’m left not knowing what I’m “allowed” to do. any info is appropriated!

      The state site says salons connected to spas should close . It’s not super clear . I even called the state and they could not answer me .

        thank you, Sarah!
        anyone we have talked to has had no answer as well.
        CDC, DHHR, LARA … everyone we can think of to contact, no answers.
        if you hear anything let me know, and I will do the same, thanks again!

      Our salon owner talked to Lara. We are a salon and spa. The services that are still allowed are hair services and nail services. We cannot do skin services or massage. Of coarse we are limiting to 10 people or less. I’m wondering how much longer we’ll be able to stay open?

      I decided to stop working starting yesterday. The owner of my salon doesn’t want to close. I don’t want to either but I feel it is the right thing to do. All the other girls at my salon are done this week too. So not sure what will happen… not sure why spa services wouldn’t be allowed but hair services are… we are just as close to our guests…

      We are still open but have had many cancellations the past two days. Our owner gave us all masks to wear and we are disinfecting like crazy. I’m trying to decide if I should just bite the bullet and cancel everyone from Saturday forward, or go ahead and finish the week and cancel everyone from there on for two weeks. None of us really know what to do since the State hasn’t made us close yet. Some of our girls really need every penny they make and we are all independent contractors not employees. Ugh!!😩
