  • They may only provide services to customers on an appointment basis – no walk-in services and only one customer in the establishment at a time.
  • The services must be necessary for the customer to meet grooming standards established by the customer’s employer. The customer must provide written documentation of the employer’s grooming standards
  • Both the customer and barber/salon staff must wear face coverings except when it would make it impossible for services to be performed.
  • After each customer, the barber/salon must clean and disinfect the area where services were performed in accordance with applicable guidance from the CDC and Maryland Department of Health.
