Can anyone answer this for me.....🤓
If a client lives in a different tier to the salon, is she allowed to travel into a different tier?
The client lives in tier three & the salon is in tier two....🤔

In @Noodle's link above, under Tier 3 it says:-

you can continue to travel to venues or amenities which are open, but should aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible
I would suggest as we can open in all tiers, you would be classed as a 'venue or amenity which is open' therefore travel is acceptable, plus she is travelling to a Lower Tier rather than into a higher one. Apart from the Hospitality closures most of the restrictions relate to 'socialising' - she's not socialising with you.

I think the question is for you and your Risk Assessment...are you comfortable bringing someone from Tier 3 into a Tier 2 establishment.


Marian Newman has just updated her Group with this statement (30/11/20 - 16.30pm)

Latest from BEIS!!!
LATEST RESPONSE:As previously advised, travel between tiers isn’t regulated in law (it would be very difficult to enforce this) but guidance strongly advises against travel out or into Tier 3 other than for essential reasons in order to reduce transmission. I’m not sure we can be anymore specific than that.

I’ve been musing about Christmas. I would normally be open for 3-4 days between Christmas and New Year. I am thinking that I will close this year.

I’d rather close and lose 4 days business than risk being told to self isolate for 2 weeks plus (depending on whether I catch anything that I’m exposed to)

I’m interested in other opinions.

Regarding accepting business from a client living in a higher tier to your business. We are allowed to stay open in all tiers. You need to ask yourself whether your Covid protocols will keep you safe.

in my local area the tier 2 risk of infection is 1:500, but I also have tier 3 on my doorstep. I’ve decided that I’ll accept the risk but I’m reducing the number of clients that I see and I’m not working over people’s faces for more than 15 minutes. For facials, I’ve got a great filter machine from Ravair which I really trust. My facial clients are mostly older ladies who are very careful.

Most of my work is at well over 1m distance with excellent hygiene and ventilation.

My children are key workers - my daughter is tested weekly, but I’d be devastated if I infected my clients so I’ll see my children this Christmas but stay home for a week afterwards as a precaution.

I close before Christmas eve, and between Christmas and New Year, I always have. My clients are all done before Christmas, my view is there is nothing that can't wait until the new year and I deserve a break.

In a normal year I would open for 2 days between Christmas and New Year for appointments but this year I'm not as I don't think there will be much demand and I'm also thinking about all the household mixing that will be going on.
So this year I will be closed on Christmas eve through to Sunday 3rd Jan.

I am mobile & in Kent where there is a blanket tier 3. Even though my area is fairly low, 15 minutes away is swale which is the highest rate in the country.
I usually work between Xmas & new year but this year I’m not as don’t want to be going into anyone’s house where all their family has been & god knows what is flying about there. Most of my clients are sensible & won’t go crazy but I’m not taking the risk.

I’m just..very very lucky I think that I can wait if wanted to. But also totally confused as I work from home and whether I’m even allowed.
There are no restrictions on any type of Personal Care worker in any Tier - salon, mobile or home based are all allowed to work, provided they follow the Covid-19 Guidelines required.

And with regard to your personal situation, I'd be holding off until January too in your position.

Oh sorry should have been clearer. There are restrictions...bubbles are still a restriction. Nobody in Their right mind would go to a salon appt then have dinner with their family.

So say you see a sibling on Christmas eve and in laws on xmas day, neither of them is allowed to see anyone else in those 5 days (I think it’s five), as the 3 bubble rule is shared between you all. Not each gets 3 families. Nobody cares and everyone I know is already mixing with their families.

Yet every member could just nip for a facial without a mask before
Christmas dinner now.

Kind of ready to pack it all in for good. Feel like we are lab rats.
