Space your chairs 2 meters away from each other.

You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms. Implement an appointment system either online or telephone calls with your clients to maximise business efficiency and that clients are symptoms free during a visit.

It's ideal to separate your staff shifts into two groups and each group can take care of a particular day. If one of your staff shows symptoms you can isolate that group and allow the other group run the business for you.

Create a robust hygiene regime for your business. 

Ask your staff to wash their hands regularly and thoroughly ( for at least 20 seconds ) with hand wash, soap or washing liquid.
Do not shake hands with others and use a pair of disposable gloves or hand gels when serving clients. Be extra cautious when dealing with cash or notes.

Hygiene for clients and staff

Place a hand gel bottle and pack of gloves in front of each chair to maximise your client and staff protection.

Also using face masks can provide limited protection. Do not remove or touch the face mask as it defies the purpose of use. 

Use a sterilisation solution or spray to disinfect and clean each section between services.
