In the last week of April, the state government of Georgia allowed salons, spas, and restaurants to restart their operations. However, a set of guidelines was provided to business owners and were asked to strictly follow them as non-compliance could result in serious repercussions.
The Georgia State Board of Cosmetology and Barbers were also part of the process to prepare guidelines for implementation by Georgia's shops and salons.

In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, it’s critical for salons and spas to strictly adhere to increased safety and sanitation guidelines. Below are some of the top-level guidelines provided by the state of Georgia for salon and spa operators to follow:

1. Install Sneeze Guards and Plexiglass Barriers

Nail spas should install sneeze guards or Plexiglass barriers to separate the guests from nail technicians. The virus can transmit from respiratory droplets and these glass barriers are effective in minimizing the chances of transmission.

2. Screening Questions

Salons should consider asking some screening questions for the safety of their staff and customers. Politely request your customers to leave if they are experiencing symptoms like coughs and fever. Also ask them if they have been around someone who tested positive or exhibiting the symptoms.

3. Temperature Checks

Salons should check the temperature of their staff each day. It is also a wise practice to only use touchless infrared thermometers and screen every client entering the salon.

4. Limit People in Shops/Salons

Salons should not entertain walk-in customers and consider seeing clients by appointment only. Salons can use their website or social media or telephone calls for appointments and scheduling. It is also important to limit the number of people in the waiting areas. Request your clients to wait outside the salon or in their vehicle until the barber is ready to serve them. Serve a limited number of clients at the time and customers not being serviced should wait outside.

5. Maintain Social Distancing

That’s a no brainer. Health agencies have constantly emphasized practicing social distance. Salons and spas should redesign their studios so that a minimum of six feet distance is maintained between customers.

6. Disinfection

Salons must disinfect and thoroughly clean their entire facility before opening. Disinfect all frequently touched surfaces on a regular basis. Salons must also regularly sanitize tools and equipment such as scissors, shampoo bowls, workstations, and restrooms. Install hand sanitizing stations in the salon and remove kill-time items like newspapers, magazines, or other unnecessary paper products. Avoid cash and request customers to either pay online or use credit/debit cards for transactions.

7. Administrative Measures

Salons must constantly update their staff on the best health and safety practices. Salons should also consider introducing flexible work schedules to reduce the number of people in the salon. Provide protective gear such as face masks and gloves to all employees and give paid leaves to any staff member experiencing symptoms.
