The Board will post updates here as the COVID-19 pandemic develops
Salon and School Reopening Update April 23, 2020 - Governor Cooper announced the tentative reopening date for cosmetic art shops in NC has been rescheduled. Executive Order 135 has extended the stay at home order through May 8, 2020 at 5:00.
After May 8, a tentative phased return to work plan will address the opening of businesses that can operate with social distancing and later a second phase may include salons with restrictions regarding numbers of customers. There is no specific date assigned for cosmetic art shops and schools to reopen at this time, the Board staff will update our website and email licensees with updates as soon as possible. https://www.nccosmeticarts.com/

The Board has reached out to the Governor’s office and shared our infection control regulations. When the Governor releases shop reopening guidelines to the Board, we will immediately release information to licensees.
Current license renewals can be submitted on time between July 1, 2019 12:00am and October 1, 2019 11:59pm. Licensees that are not exempt or inactive must complete 8 hours of CE per year.
