November 15, 2020 Update from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)

In facilities offering non-essential personal care services, including hair, nail, tanning, massage, traditional spa, tattoo, body art, and piercing services, and similar personal care services, gatherings are only permitted to the extent that services do not involve the removal of face masks. All services must be provided by appointment, and gatherings in waiting areas are prohibited.

Additionally, those massage businesses who choose to continue operation must take down specific information and retain it for 28 days in case there is a need to use it for contact tracing. These items include:

  • Date and time of entry
  • Name of patrons
  • Contact information (specifically phone number)

Gatherings are prohibited at the following facilities unless the facility maintains accurate records, including date and time of entry, names of patrons, and contact information, to aid with contact tracing, and denies entry for a gathering to any visitor who does not provide, at a minimum, their name and phone number
