On June 15, 2020, Governor Jared Polis released Safer at Home: New Guidelines (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1U0vrv7GEOp_vGGkxlDqjJCJdRVmQxx8d/view), which, among other allowed activities, expands permitted personal care services. Facials, shaves, beard trimming, and lip waxing services are allowed effective June 18, 2020. Clients may remove their face coverings for these services.
We expect the guidelines for personal services to be updated before June 18, 2020, and we have contacted upper management at DORA for clarification. Please watch for updates to the current Personal Services Guidelines (https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home/safer-at-home-personal-services) issued later than the June 11, 2020 update.
ASCP and AHP encourage professionals to take extra precautions while performing these services and suggest wearing a face shield in addition to a mask. For further safety guidance during the COVID-19 era, we also suggest reviewing our comprehensive series of back-to-practice guidelines to help reduce risk and keep you and your clients safe.
