Wearing a mask and gloves
Depending on where you are located, wearing a mask may be required for most if not all indoor public spaces.

Additionally, you may also need to require all of your employees to wear disposable gloves while working with clients.
Another common regulation opens in a new window is the use of plexiglass barriers to help reduce the flow and spread of germs. You will want to put these in spaces in which your employees are stationed to provide services, collect money, greet customers, etc. You will also want them to be placed in between stations to separate the customers from one another.
Next, you may also want to create hand sanitizing stations to help kill germs that are present on your customers’ and employees’ hands. Many places install hand sanitizer dispensers in areas such as the entrance, next to counters, and any other place that you deem necessary.
Social distancing markers
You may also want to install social distancing markers to let your employees and clients know how far they should be standing from the counters and other customers.
No matter how safe your facilities are, some services may be deemed too risky for the time being. For instance, many places have had to suspend massage services, close areas such as steam rooms, areas that include self-service of any kind, etc.
