In addition, several people asked about the use of hooded hair dryers in resuming salon services. Here is DAIL's response to whether hooded hair dryers can be used in salons, which is question #40 on DAIL's updated FAQs document (the short answer is yes, hooded hair dryers can be used - great news!!):
40. Question: 6/11/20
Response: The hooded dryer works on the same principles of the conventional hair dryer. The beautician with only one resident being served at a time in the salon can move the resident to a hooded dryer for hair to be set. Once the equipment is running no one should be within six feet as it is running and blowing the hair under the hood. Once the resident has completed the setting then the beautician will need to continue to follow all other cosmetology guidelines in LTC settings, including cleaning and disinfection of the hooded dryer and other equipment within a six feet radius of the dryer.
