As many of you know, Virginia has already moved to the Phase 3 Re-opening stage. However, a number of limitations still do exist as to the type of services that Spa-s and other personal care establishments are allowed to provide. One of those limitations is around Facials. According to the guidelines, “Employees and service providers working in customer-facing areas are required to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth at all times, and the services need to be limited to only those that can be completed without clients removing their face coverings”.
We, together with more than 2,800 others have signed a petition to allow Virginia Estheticians to perform facials on clients immediately. We would like the Governor to recognize that we are capable and ready to offer facial and skin care treatments on clients with updated safety guidelines and modifications. For clients who feel comfortable removing their masks and receiving a facial treatment, please allow them to do so. As for now, we will keep our services limited and follow the rules, but want to let all of you know that we are patiently waiting for the final decision hoping things will change and we finally will be able to take care of your beautiful faces in no time!
