Can I book a facial treatment now?

Although, you can currently book treatments like manicures, body waxing, pedicures, foot treatments and some massages.

Hairdressers have been fully open since July 4.

How will social distancing work?

Businesses will have to meet guidelines and make an effort to protect both staff and clients.

These measures would may installing perspex screens between customers, and wearing masks, gloves and visors when appropriate during treatments.

It is currently unclear whether or not customers will also have to wear masks, but it certainly will be recommended.
