Last update 12.04.2021

At a joint meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers and the Crisis Management Council today, 23 February, the government supported the amendments to the regulatory enactments proposed by the Ministry of Economics, allowing the provision of manicure, pedicure, podiatrist, and hairdresser services from 1 March this year. At the same time, the government imposed additional safety requirements on beauty care service providing places and providers, as well as tightening controls on compliance.

The goal of the concept of safe provision of beauty care services is to create long-term safe conditions for the provision of industry services in Covid-19 circumstances. Therefore, the concept of safe provision of beauty care services in Covid-19 circumstances includes:

  •   enhanced security requirements for customer service organization,
  •   distance during the provision of services,
  •   the use of personal protective equipment by the service provider,
  •   the use of disinfectants,
  •   room ventilation,
  •   requirements for work accessories and equipment,
  •   a requirement for service providers to designate a person responsible for monitoring compliance with epidemiological requirements.

At the same time, the government ruled that it was forbidden to offer mobile beauty care services visiting the client to provide services at home.

Service providers will be supervised by the Health Inspectorate in cooperation with the Consumer Rights Protection Centre, the State Police, and the municipal police.

Detailed amendments to the regulatory enactments approved by the government are available on the website of the Cabinet of Ministers:
