Nail salons, tattoo and piercing parlors, spas and outdoor sports courts reopen today as New York City begins Phase III of the state’s reopening plan.

Personal care services can reopen under the third phase but at a limited capacity and employees and customers must wear face coverings.

Nail salons, tattoo and piercing parlors, tanning salons, massage therapy parlors, spas, waxing facilities and other personal care services are limited to 50 percent capacity.

About 50,000 people will return to work today, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

“Today is a good day because about 50,000 people will come back to work and start their livelihoods again,” he said during a morning briefing. “A whole range of personal services will be available again.”

Services that require customers to remove their masks or face coverings, like facials, lip waxing and lip or nose piercing are prohibited under the state guidelines.

Outdoor recreational areas and courts — including basketball, tennis, volleyball, handball and bocce — also open today, along with dog runs.

Indoor dining was originally slated for Phase III reopening as well, but will remain shuttered, the mayor announced last week.

Indoor dining “will be on hold for a substantial amount of time until we can figure out the right way to do that safely,” de Blasio said today.

Several states where indoor dining is permitted have seen an uptick in COVID-19 cases.

STOP referring to licensed therapeutic massage as “massage therapy parlors.” It denigrates and disgraces the profession of Massage Therapy, which by the way, is a licensed healthcare profession in the State of New York and NOT a cloaked operative for “happy endings” and 1970’s style porn.
