COVID-19 Update 3/19/2020

Today, Governor Polis announced additional state actions that directly affect many businesses in the state including ours. We have been officially ordered to close our doors until April 30th, 2020. 

There’s not much to say at this point other than we understand the need to slow this virus and keep everyone healthy and will comply with these orders. 

So, what does that mean for our clients?

Thankfully we had already started to thin the schedule out in anticipation of this. Some of you have already received phone calls, some have already rescheduled and many more of you will be getting calls over the next couple of days to sort out rescheduling at a later date. If we are unable to reach you after a few tries, we will reach out via email as well. 

If you are a Groupon holder, per our Monday COVID-19 Update, your Groupon will be honored beyond it’s expiration without penalty if you scheduled prior to it’s expiration. If you are rescheduling, you are already covered. Please re-read our update from Monday or give us a call or send us an email if you need more clarification. 

We understand this is frustrating for everyone as it is very frustrating for us as well. None of us asked for our lives to be upended and face a new unwanted challenge each day. We will remain available for contact during this time as well, so feel free to call or email us to check in or ask questions. 


Notice of CDPHE Public Health Order Closing Non-Essential Public Services through April 30, 2020

Dear Licensee:

This afternoon, Governor Jared Polis announced a number of state actions to further address the spread and impact of COVID-19. Among those actions is an updated order from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) mandating that all businesses conducting “nonessential personal services” close to entry, exit, use, and occupancy by members of the public through April 30, 2020.

This order, effective immediately, impacts DORA licensees in the Barber/Cosmetology and Massage Therapy fields. Hair stylists, nail technicians, barbers, estheticians, cosmetologists, massage therapists, and shop owners in the barber/cosmetology industry licensed by the Division of Professions and Occupations are impacted.

Updated Public Health Order 20-22 defines nonessential personal services as “services and products that are not necessary to maintain an individual’s health or safety, or the sanitation or essential operation of a business or residence. Nonessential personal services include, but are not limited to, hair or nail salons, spas, or tattoo or massage parlors.”

The order strictly mandates closure of businesses falling under the definition of “non-essential personal services,” and not individuals who provide these services outside of a business; however, DORA strongly recommends all licensed professionals adhere to CDPHE’s guidance regarding social distancing. Under this guidance, individuals are advised not to invite visitors or non-essential service workers into their homes. 

The CDPHE order also includes previous statewide closures of other multiple business types, including bars, restaurants, theaters, gymnasiums, casinos, and other nonessential personal services facilities in Colorado in an effort to protect and preserve the public health. The Order has been deemed necessary to control any potential transmission of disease to others and to avoid overwhelming the state’s healthcare system.

Licensees should check their email and the DORA COVID-19 Updates for Licensees and Consumers site for additional updates, as they become available.

General information on symptoms, testing, prevention, quarantine measures and more related to the Coronavirus is available on the Centers for Disease Control and CDPHE websites.
