Effective April 27, 2020, Governor Jared Polis issued Executive Order D 2020 044 directing Colorado to enter the new Safer at Home phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to have most people stay at home as much as possible and avoid any unnecessary social interactions, while also allowing businesses that are hurting from extended closures to gradually reopen under restrictions and guidance to ensure as much safety as possible for both employees and consumers.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), based on the Governor’s directive, has also issued Public Health Order 20-28 which provides details of certain restrictions and safety guidance by broad industry type. CDPHE is making the information contained in the Public Health Order available via the Safer at Home webpage where you can access information by industry.
DORA recognizes that these orders, while detailed, do not necessarily reach the level of specificity many of our regulated professions desire before reopening. Additionally, we know that businesses and professionals are being asked to absorb information from a wide variety of sources. In an effort to provide not only additional clarity on industry and business-specific safety measures, but also to synthesize information from many state of Colorado sources, we have compiled addtional guidance.
The guidance document includes:
- Open/Closed status within the Industry
- Specific “Do’s and Don’ts” for Salons, Spas, and Sole Practitioners of Personal Services Under Safer at Home
- Frequently Asked Questions From Spas, Salons, and Sole Practitioners of Personal Services
Please access this document for detailed information pertaining to salons, spas and sole practitioners, which will be updated as necessary as guidance expands or changes.
