Hi all

I have had a search and cant seem to find the answer to my question online :( I have a treatment room at home for nails... can I still have clients round with the no household mixing policy, if it's business?!
I adhere to all covid-safe rules etc, as a stand alone salon would. I'm in England (Tier 3 area).
Thanks

It's so confusing isn't it. I looking for same answer as I in Manchester and expecting tier 3 by weekend. Boris said that Hairdressers and Beauty Therapists would close like pubs, but I can't find that info on all the tier 3 rules. So I really don't know if we close or can remain working. My insurance company are as confused as myself.

So I personally am going to remain open and trading at my home salon until I am told otherwise.

I agree with you, unless they explicitly say so, carry on if you feel safe doing so.

The rules relate to socialising, working is not affected, unless a total lockdown is implemented. None of the Tier 3 local authorities have stopped close contact services (so far)

  • closing personal care and close contact services or prohibiting the highest-risk activities
I think you would have to close unfortunately.

On reading this link it says 'The government will also seek to agree additional interventions in consultation with local authorities, in order to reduce the spread of the virus. These could include the following options:' and 'closing clise contact' is one of the potential options - so it's not clear cut either way. It's going to be decided by individual Local Authority Councils, so you'll need to contact yours for specifics.

The government advice is certainly not clear. However, Northern Ireland and Wales have closed salons. I think the North of England are trying to keep them open (for now) but I guess it will depend on whether you are OK with working through a tier 3 lockdown. I understand some people absolutely need to work, I guess it depends on you and your clientele and whether you feel safe carrying on.
