Nail salon owners stop scrolling right now and listen up! Not to be aggressive, but I just really needed your attention. Anyways, now that I have your attention, I have something very important to show you, and just how vital it could be for your business during these COVID times. The salon guard is a sneezeguard specifically designed with nail salons in mind.

It is 30” wide x 24” tall in total, so it gives extra room at the top so that you’re lessening everyone’s risk of COVID-19 or other sicknesses. It also is completely transparent and gives the most personal and inviting environment without compromising your safety. It makes it easy to communicate with your customers, and the clarity truly makes it seem like it is barely there! The salon guard is a tabletop guard that has an 18” wide x 8” opening. This provides ample room for manicures and other nail treatments while keeping social distancing guidelines in place and keeping you and your customer safe. It is a free-standing guard, so it is easy to remove and clean, as well as easily able to be moved for whatever reason.  It is the best way to ensure safety for both you and the customer, as it is designed with the intention of reducing the spread of COVID-19 and other contagious viruses.


If you have been struggling to find the perfect solution for your salon business, you should definitely look no further. These are affordable sneezeguards that give ample protection and are designed with your business’s needs in mind. Another great thing about the salon guard is that it is completely removable. Therefore, when COVID restrictions have been lifted, you don’t have to do anything more than remove the guard from your working area.

Coughs, Sneezes, & the Rapid Spread of COVID-19 & Other Diseases


Long before COVID-19 scientists and medical professionals have known that sneezes and coughs send germs and bacteria into the air to infect an innocent bystander. According to the Centers for Disease Control, viruses such as the flu and COVID-19 spread via droplets made when people infected with the virus cough, sneeze or talk. Generally speaking people within six feet are most likely to be susceptible to becoming infected by the droplets emitted from the sneeze and cough. However, researchers believe the distance could be further than six feet.

In 2016, Lydia Bourouiba, a researcher from MIT, conducted a study of “violent respiratory events such as coughs and sneezes” and the role they play in transferring respiratory diseases between those infected to a susceptible individual.


Another research study conducted by the University of Bristol found that a sneeze can spew droplets at speeds of up to 100 mph! The study also revealed that an average sneeze or cough sends around 100,000 contagious germs into the air. This is why experts and medical professionals are concerned about the rapid spread of COVID-19.

Creating Barriers with Guards to Protect Employees & Customers

These days it seems as if Plexiglas shield guards are showing up just about any place business is conducted from grocery stores to dry cleaners to pharmacies to restaurant pick-up windows. Although the sudden rise in these barriers is clearly due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, however, I hope businesses continue to implement them in their workplaces long after COVID-19 has settled down. There are many other germs floating around that can make employees ill and it is just good practice to continue using and installing these shields to protect workers and customers.


OSHA recommends that employers develop and implement an infectious disease preparedness and response plan that considers the level(s) of risk associated with worksites and job tasks performed by workers. A part of this plan includes considering where and how they may be exposed to the virus. Sources to consider are the public, customers, and co-workers. Occupational safety and health professionals outlined ways of controlling workplace hazards to reduce exposure. One of the suggested engineering controls is installing physical barriers, such as clear plastic sneezugards.
