Personal Service Settings

Personal services settings include any place that offers aesthetic services, such as body piercing, tattooing, nail care, hair removal, and hairstyling.

Public Health inspectors regularly visit personal services settings in Hastings Prince Edward to assess the potential for risk – for both clients and workers – of acquiring infections during the delivery of these services.

Our inspectors provide guidance on infection prevention and control according to the requirements and recommendations described in the Ministry of Health’s Infection Prevention and Control Best Practices for Personal Services Settings.

If you are planning to open a new personal service business in Hastings or Prince Edward Counties, please complete and submit the Personal Service Notification form and a Public Health Inspector will contact you.
