Coronavirus and Your Practice

COVID-19 Updates

After speaking to many of our loyal ASCP members, along with the urging of numerous local and state governments, we strongly suggest you close your doors in order to protect the community you serve. There is no way you can safely treat clients in person in today’s environment, especially with a large proportion of COVID-19 carriers being asymptomatic. It is not easy for us to make this recommendation, especially after hearing many of your concerns about the possible financial hardship that may be before you.

We recommend that you bookmark this page to stay informed on how COVID-19 may affect your skin care business and what you can do to be proactive. Here you will find COVID-19 resources, business preservation tips, client engagement ideas, and self-care activities, as well as the latest announcements from ASCP. (See below for a list of updates).

As this situation evolves, it’s important to stay informed through credible sources such as the
US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.


COVID-19 Updates from ASCP






Does disability insurance cover illness (i.e. in the case of contracting COVID-19 and needing time off to recover)?

Excellent question Alia. ASCP membership does not include disability coverage as a member benefit, only professional, general, and product liability insurance. To learn more about disability insurance options, I encourage you to reach out to our partner, Salon & Spa Benefits for information regarding disability insurance, critical illness, health, dental, and more. ASCP members receive a special discount on rates and they will be able to accurately address your questions and concerns.
