Scottish Beautician’s & MUAs get the go ahead to resume services!

Following a tough 14 months for the Scottish Beauty Industry, it was announced that close contact services that require a client’s mask to be removed will be able to go ahead on the 31st of May

From 31 May 2021, a client/customer may temporarily remove a face covering to receive a treatment to this area, as long as the person/practitioner providing the treatment is wearing appropriate protective equipment as detailed below.

Staff are at the highest risk of exposure to COVID-19 when working in close proximity to the face, nose or mouth and so risk assessments should be carried out to consider what measures need to be implemented to protect the health and safety of all staff and clients/customers, including whether or not to carry out the treatment. Risk assessments should be regularly reviewed or revised to ensure that any new or increased risks – including local prevalence of the virus – are identified and mitigated.
