In line with step 3 of the roadmap, the updated guidance is as follows:

  • saunas and steam rooms can reopen
  • updated social contact rules (gatherings of up to 30 people are permitted outdoors; gatherings of up to 6 people or 2 households of any size are permitted indoors)
  • you can provide reading materials such as newspapers and magazines in client waiting areas
  • you can provide refreshments in line with guidance for restaurants, pubs, bars and takeaway services

The Government has also clarified the guidance on the use of gloves during treatment.
