Diseases are considered communicable if they spread from one person to another or from an animal to a person. Most diseases spread due to direct contact with an infected person or his/her blood, but some diseases may be spread by sharing implements or through the air or contaminated water. Because salon professionals work very closely with their clients, they are at risk for both contracting and spreading communicable diseases. It is our responsibility as salon professionals to protect our clients and ourselves to the best of our abilities. This course will review the most common communicable diseases, with a special focus on diseases often encountered in the salon or spa environment.

COVID-19 has brought a crisis that's unprecedented in modern times, and the crisis is having drastic economic effects in addition to the medical impacts. Hair, skin, and nail salons have and will continue to see revenue decrease during the immediate future, but there are ways to mitigate the economic effects of COVID-19. To weather the pandemic, salons and their professionals should take advantage of federal financial assistance programs that they qualify for and employ these long-term strategies.
Human trafficking is a very serious problem and can be heartbreaking, cause severe injuries, and even kill its victims. The use of nail salons as a cover for human trafficking is not only illegal, it also makes communities less safe. By learning to recognize the signs of human trafficking, and by reporting suspected trafficking, you can help to stop the violence, and to hold human traffickers accountable for their actions.
