UKSA Covid-19 Reopening Guidelines

We are delighted to provide our UKSA COVID-19 Reopening guidance for spas and salons throughout the UK.

This guidance has been created by the UK Spa Association for its members and the wider UK spa industry and is designed for the initial reopening period and anticipated social distancing restrictions.
We were invited to consult with the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) on the publication of the guidance document for “close contact services, including hair and beauty” released on 23rd June 2020. 
At the same time we have been busy gathering feedback from the industry, through our 'What's Next for Wellness' survey as well as innumerable Spa Director and Supplier Assemblies, to understand the information we needed to provide to help UK spas re-open as safely and successfully as possible.
While the government guidelines cover all industries with close contact work, our guidelines have been tailored specifically for spas and salons. Within this detailed and comprehensive document you will find the information you need to open in a COVID safe way.

Please note however, that this guidance is not a legal requirement and does not replace government guidance. It is important to remember that every spa and salon is different, and so each spa operator and individual should consider how our guidance best fits with the requirements of your own business, and of course there is no reason why you can't go above the guidance within this document, if you feel it is appropriate. However, it is not advised to operate below these standards.

Finally, it is essential that we thank the many, many UKSA members who have taken time to join me on the UKSA Assemblies over recent months.  The support and commitment you have shown to us and each other through this crisis has been nothing short of phenomenal. I would also like to give particular thanks to the sponsors of the survey, the 59club and also the UKSA board and working group who have contributed to the production of this document for the benefit of the industry.
Warm Regards
Yvonne Ebdon
UKSA General Manager
