COVID-19

I'm late to posting this because, well, I am trying to navigate this new world, just like everyone else. I have been watching and looking for the ever-changing information that is coming from the Wisconsin Govenors office, as well as from the Wisconsin State Health Department, and while I can't find anything specifically for Electrolysis, there are things for the broader cosmetology field in which I find myself in. The below information can be found on the WIS DHS site, under the Large community events and mass gatherings tab
  • Hair salons, barber shops, nail salons, day spas, tattoo parlors, body art establishments, and tanning facilities are not exempt from this order. All of these entities must close effective at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 20, 2020.
While this does not explicitly state electrologists, I would include myself amongst this field of businesses.

So it is with a heavy heart, I close my doors for an unknown period of time. I don't know when this ban will be lifted, any more than the professionals who are leading this fight to keep us all safe. I can just say that I will play my part by closing my doors until the scientists and doctors tell me it is safe for me, my family, you, and your family to venture out and see each other face to face again.

What this will mean for existing/new clients:
Existing clients- I will call/text you to let you know that I don't know when we will be able to meet again, but I will let you know ASAP when I get the ALL CLEAR to go back to work, and get you back on the schedule.
New clients- I will not be scheduling any new clients for a while. When you get the ALL CLEAR to resume normal life, give me a call, and I will get you on the schedule. I'm sorry that I won't be able to do more right now, but this is where we are at.

Things you can do while you wait? Use the shaver! Shaving is best, so just stick with that for now. I WILL NOT JUDGE YOU if you pick up that tweezers, but know, you are only making things worse for yourself. So help yourself out, and stick to the shaver!

We will all get through this!

Please take care of yourself and stay safe!

Hairily yours,
Jessica

I'm adding this link to the CDCs site for the COVID-19, because my 14 year old told me to. You are welcome.
