Erin Corne started this petition to Governor Tom Wolf

There are over 8,400 estheticians (licensed skincare specialists) in Pennsylvania and we have been kept out of work since March. That is SIX MONTHS of NO paychecks with NO END in sight even though most of our counties have been in the "green" phase of mitigation for over 2 months now. To make matters worse, the state is allowing estheticians who work in medspas to practice, but not those in "regular" spas or salons. I have worked in BOTH and just because a medspa has a medical director, does NOT mean that they are taking more precautions or are any safer than an environment that we can create by implementing a set of standards to keep us safe. For instance, I have worked at medspas where I NEVER saw our medical director, they did not require faceshields or air purifiers during the pandemic, etc. Why should they be given the basic right of being able to work but we are not?

It is a terrible policy that has been arbitrarily put in place by the PA Department of Health, State Board of Cosmetolgy and Governor Wolf with NO input from anyone within the profession. I have tried REPEATEDLY to reach out to these leaders and offer my assistance in putting together a list of standards that would be required to operate, but to no avail. We need your help, so please consider signing this petition. The state cannot keep an ENTIRE profession from working with no end in sight!
