RE: Information regarding your state's back-to-practice permission date and safety guidelines to minimize risk of exposure to, and spread of, COVID-19 in the workplace.
Permission to Practice June 8, 2020
Governor John Carney announced Phase 2 of Delaware's Reopening, permitting hair salons, barbershops, massage therapy services, nail salons, spas, facials, waxing services, brow services, and similar personal care services to resume business operations June 8, 2020. Businesses that reopen must follow the industry-specific guidance found on page 10 of the linked document, in addition to the general business guidance beginning on page 3.
NOTE: With some states giving authority to local governments regarding work authorization, your liability insurance is only valid if you comply with whichever regulations are the most restrictive—state or local. If you are not authorized to work per state or regional orders, and you are working, you are not in compliance with your state or local regulations and therefore your insurance would not be valid.
Additional Safety Resources
ABMP, ASCP, AHP, and ANP understand there is a fine line between getting back to work and earning an income and protecting the safety of you and your clients. When Michigan gradually reopens, we urge you to make government permission to work only one element of your decision about whether and when to reopen. We encourage you to prepare yourself to resume business operations when the time comes. Please review our comprehensive series of back-to-practice guidelines to help reduce risk and keep you and your clients safe.
