19 September 2023
BY NOW MOST STATES HAVE returned to work after the lockdown and while there is a lot of excitement with re-engaging with your clients, some are still overwhelmed with uncertainty about what they are allowed, or not allowed to do. The key issue to consider at this stage is how the procedures you are doing are classified. If they are skin penetration, then look at whether your state is allowing tattooing at this stage.

I promised you a brief summary of the highlights of what was discussed, so here are some key points incase you missed viewing this event:
Masks that met with the appropriate medical standards were identified as:
It was also suggested that non-aerosol generating procedures will not require surgical respirators, a simple medical mask would be sufficient.
All procedures that release plum, splash or droplets will require eye protection e.g. a full-face visa screen were highly recommended for these procedures.
We are continuing to receive phone-calls with individuals who come across an unusual situation they are not sure about. Please do not fret, we welcome your enquiries and we are happy to help you transition through this phase of your business with our full support.
