Resumption of Salon Services

Stephen Hanse Lisa Volk and Tarrah Quinlan in Clinical & Quality

Beginning 11/6/2020, Adult Care Facilities (ACFs) and Nursing Homes (NH) may resume in-house salon services, provided that the facility is able to adhere to all local, state, and federal requirements as applicable, relative to hair salons and barbershops. Salon services may not commence in nursing homes or adult care facilities located in Red or Orange micro-cluster zones. Information on those areas can be found at https://forward.ny.gov/. Further, residents who are isolated or quarantined are ineligible for salon services until cleared by the local health department (for ACFs) or removed from droplet and/or contact precautions. 

The following guidelines include minimum requirements and are based on current best-known public health practices. Facilities must stay current with any updates to these requirements and incorporate any hair salon or barbershop operation into their Safety Plan. See full advisory here.
