Three busi­nesses in the Al­berta Health Ser­vices Cal­gary zone are be­ing man­dated to close af­ter of­fer­ing es­thetic ser­vices cur­rently banned to curb the spread of COVID-19.

In Cal­gary, Sa­j­jal Thread­ing & Wax­ing Stu­dio Inc., at 1235 17th Ave. S.W., was of­fer­ing wax­ing, eye­brow thread­ing and tint­ing ser­vices, ac­cord­ing to AHS. These pro­ce­dures can “con­trib­ute to the spread of COVID-19.”

Sim­i­larly, Queen’s Nails and Spa at 124 2nd Ave. in Strath­more has been di­rected to close im­me­di­ately af­ter of­fer­ing es­thet­ics ser­vices.

Tanya Kim Es­thet­ics, at 1229 Iron Land­ing Way in Cross­field, about 50 kilo­me­tres north of Cal­gary, must do the same af­ter of­fer­ing eye­brow mi­crob­lad­ing and man­i­cures to the pub­lic. The in­spec­tion also showed the shop had in­suf­fi­cient dis­in­fec­tant and clean­ing pro­ce­dures in place.

The ser­vices con­tra­vene pub­lic health orders is­sued by Dr. Deena Hin­shaw, Al­berta’s chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer of health. They “are or may be­come in­ju­ri­ous or dan­ger­ous to the pub­lic health or which might hin­der in any man­ner the pre­ven­tion or sup­pres­sion of dis­ease,” AHS said.

So far, un­der Phase 1 of Al­berta’s re­launch strat­egy, the only es­thetic ser­vices al­lowed to re­sume oper­a­tions are hair salons and bar­ber shops.

Other per­sonal ser­vices, like man­i­cures, tan­ning and cosmetic, fa­cial or body treat­ments, aren’t al­lowed to re­open un­til Phase 2, ex­pected for mid-june.
