The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) routinely inspects all personal service settings.

These settings include: 

  • Hair and barber salons
  • Manicure and pedicure salons
  • Esthetic clinics
  • Tattoo parlours
  • Premises that provide ear and body piercing, electrolysis, microblading, and/or micropigmentation

WECHU responds to complaints regarding infection prevention and also provides education to owners/operators and staff about safe practices that reduce the risk of transmitting infections to clients and staff during the delivery of personal settings.  Learn about the new regulation for Personal Service Settings.

If you have any questions or concerns about a personal service setting in Windsor-Essex County, please call the Environmental Health Hotline at 519-258-2146 ext. 4475 to speak with a Public Health Inspector.
