Don’t know if this helps - or makes things worse....
A client of mine in nursing - sent me this visual....
It makes sense of the original 2 meter rule....2BEF3D33-430B-4CC9-B788-08A4248C071D.jpeg

Sure does make sense. Unless someone sneezes of course, then you need at least 5 metres :eek:

Good luck with your reopening.
I think it is a wise idea to give yourself extra time between clients. I’m mobile which is slightly different, but I find it has taken me between 30 mins to an hour to clean everything between clients, i’m not really sure how some are doing it in in 15 minutes.
I also think you can’t be over cautious at the moment, especially if you are vulnerable like yourself. Do whatever feels comfortable for you & I agree with you about delaying the treatments that would require removal of the mask. We’re not allowed in shops without a mask now, so how is it safe to be in such close proximity to a client without a mask.
Let us know how you get on.
Thank you Enchanting Beauty, I really appreciate your comments

In case no one has seen it, just announced on NHBF, the guidance on face coverings has changed in England. Clients should be strongly encouraged to wear face coverings. Staff should still just wear a visor.
Not sure how this is going to work with lip & chin waxes & facials, the official guidelines treatments haven’t changed yet.

Following the Government’s announcement a short while ago, all close contact treatments have now been postponed until at least 15th August :(

I didn’t book anyone in for face treatments as there was always a possibility this could happen. I feel sorry for those who only do face treatments & nothing else to fall back on. It doesn’t sound good when the government say they’ve reached the limit on reopening...how much longer will it be?! Without support these businesses really will go under now.

Day 1 of re-opening done and dusted........and breath!! Hope that your all doing well and those of you that have been back working for a few weeks have now settled into the new way of working. I found the same problems those of you that had already opened have experienced! I limited myself to just 5 clients today with loads of cleaning down time in between. Although 3 of those clients being full leg and hollywood waxing probably added to me feeling as though I was melting under the constraints of mask, visor, plastic apron and gloves! As I haven't seen my clients for such a long time I found they were all eager to talk about everything and anything and it would have been rude not to engage with the conversation. I wear the disposable masks as I find the fabric ones that I've purchased too constricting to wear for any length of time, but I had a real problem with the mask slipping as I spoke. The masks fit perfectly, glasses placed on top to prevent steaming up but the constant chattering puts paid to the mask staying secure. Other than telling clients I can't speak to them, have any of you found a solution to this problem?

I also found a problem with the disposable masks & talking, they kind of nudge upwards & poke me in the eye! I found pinching the nose strip really tight & slightly raising my head when speaking has helped a little bit.
Glad your day went reasonably well, sleep well
I think we all have to learn to take our time now, it’s not the same as before.
I’m returning to work tomorrow after 2 weeks off after my little meltdown. Seriously reduced days, 2 clients at same house tomorrow & Wednesday then will see how I go from there if I can manage 1 or 2 more in a day.
Hope everyone doing well x

I don't know if you have tried folding your mask in half and adding a knot in the elastics close to the fabric ? It will help to keep it more secure on your face.
My jawline is quite defined ,bur my face is small. I have 3 different makes of disposable masks and some fit better than others.
One kind I twist the elastics in a crossed fashion to loop it around my ears.
You may already do this anyway but it's a suggestion you could try.
Good luck for your reduced days.
I have 3 appointments today ...bliss.

Thanks for the tip, will try that if I still get problems. These are different masks to the ones I tried before, they do seem different. The other ones didn’t seem to ride up.
Have a nice day.
