Covid-19 Updates Regarding Our School
This page will be updated periodically to share any developments over the next few weeks. Please check back for the latest information.
We are excited to share that our COVID procedures on our campuses are going well! We have organized the space in our facilities to accommodate for social distancing so students can safely take breaks, learn, and work on our clinic floor. We are also working with our state guidelines regarding face masks and checking temperatures for those entering our schools.
In compliance with tier 3 mitigation measures, some facial services that would require removing a face mask have been temporarily halted. The only hands-on portion that has been affected currently is services including beard trims, lip, and chin waxing. In the meantime, we have been working with our students to use mannequins in the interim. We have also put a plan in place to come back to those learning modules and services once the mitigation is lifted.
We greatly value and appreciate the safety of our students and staff. Within our school, we feel our students have a good understanding of our procedures and know that we are doing the best we can given all the restrictions we are under. We have worked hard to adapt to our state guidelines, and are always happy to provide any additional information to our future students and clients.
