MoCo Enters Phase 1 on June 1; Virtual Appointments Continue

29 May

I have been enjoying seeing you all via virtual appointments (text, voice, and video) since I closed for in-person appointments in March due to COVID-19. I hope to see many more of you for virtual appointments for makeup lessons, consultations, girl talk, fantasy sessions, wardrobe assistance, online shopping, and more. Check out the options on my makeup menu. If you have something else that you’re interested in, just let me know and we can create a virtual option that works for you.

You may have seen that Montgomery County in Maryland will be entering Phase 1 of reopening this Monday, June 1 at 6 a.m. However, my business will not be reopening to in-person clients this Monday based on the published guidelines.

Here’s why:

1. Makeup artistry: The makeup artist aspect of my business does not fall into the Phase 1 reopening criteria of the 13 May 2020 executive order by Governor Hogan.

2. Local jurisdiction: Montgomery County, Maryland (MoCo) is opened for limited business in its version of Phase 1. For example, retail businesses can only offer curb-side pickup not indoor shopping experiences. Hair salons can only provide hair services not other cosmetology services. Nail salons are not allowed to reopen. Based on this guidance, I cannot offer any indoor services at this time including studio photography or consultations.

3. Outdoor services: I have considered offering outdoor, socially-distanced services such as hangout time, girl chat, feminine deportment, makeup and wardrobe feedback (from a distance), outdoor photography, etc. on my front porch or back deck at a six foot or greater distance. This would require clients to arrived dressed in their preferred mode. However, MoCo is not allowing outdoor fitness classes to resume at this time even though the state of Maryland has as part of its Phase 1, part 2 roll-out. Additionally, curbside-pickup does not seem to mean sidewalk and outdoor shopping. Thus, I can’t justify offering outdoor services yet. The limited outdoor services I listed in this section will likely be the first ones I can offer as MoCo continues to reopen.

I will continue to post updates on my website as MoCo and Maryland release more guidance. Like you, I look forward to reopening and being able to connect with you all.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Thank you for your most recent update on your services and how they relate to the state’s guidelines on reopening. It’s clear that you have put a lot of thought into the best way to serve your clients while putting their health and safety above all other considerations. It must be tough operating a business that by nature is hands-on and involves close contact, in the middle of a quarantine! So I really hope you are coping well and receiving high client volume online despite the restrictions. And I hope I can see you soon myself, in person! Please take care of yourself and be well. Emily

    I think I speak for the majority of your clients when I say thanks for keeping us updated, and that while we’re all looking forward to the day that we can have an in person session again we’re very appreciative of your virtual offers.
