The Barber National Institute continues to determine policies relating to Covid-19 based upon the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC,) the Pennsylvania Department of Health and other  agencies.  In accordance with the most recent recommendations, the Barber National Institute has established the following practices in our facilities:

  • Masks are optional and not required for staff, students/consumers and visitors.*
  • All staff, visitors and students/consumers are asked not to enter our facilities if they are experiencing a fever or other symptoms of Covid-19.
  • Protocols for enhanced cleaning procedures and frequent handwashing practices remain in place.

All employees are encouraged to refer to the Employee Portal for postings relating to requirements that may vary in their particular setting.

The Barber National Institute will continue providing information and may update policies depending on changes in guidance from the CDC or other agencies.

We continue to encourage all staff and families to stay up to date with available vaccines and boosters for Covid-19 and the flu.

(*An exception to this masking policy pertains to staff in Philadelphia who must follow local ordinances requiring non-vaccinated employees to double mask while at work.)
