March 18, 2020                                                                    ANNOUNCEMENT


Dear members,

We have been working together with both the Chief Medical Officer of Health and with our colleagues in NS (The Cosmetology Association of Nova Scotia) and PEI (The PEI Hairdressers Association). 

The COVID 19 pandemic has been evolving daily, and in some cases hourly.

Thank you for your patience and support during these unprecedented times.  

This afternoon, both the Chief Public Health Officer of Prince Edward Island, and the Chief Medical Officer of Health for Nova Scotia will announce the closure of all salons in their jurisdictions.  We are working with the New Brunswick Chief Officer of Medical Health, but we do not have an order from them yet.



That said, our Association has two founding missions:

  • Promote our Profession
  • Protect the Public



While we await formal direction from the Chief Medical Officer of Health, we recommend that you seriously consider closure.  We are not medical professionals and we cannot order you to close, but it does seem to be the prudent course of action at this time to protect the health and welfare both of our members and the public.  

We are preparing a list of FAQs for you.  These will be posted on our website and Facebook page later today.  We will keep these updated throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as it progresses.

 We will get through this, and we will come out the other side stronger as an association.  Thank you for your patience, support and cooperation
