According to the Massachusetts Association of Vocational Administrators, the program’s vocational-technical schools for cooking and cosmetics programs are back to working with public precautions thanks to updated guidelines from state education officials.

“With the reopening of school-run restaurants and salons, students on these programs will again have the opportunity not only to practice the skills they have learned in their industry, but also the opportunity to practice employable skills such as service and professionalism.

These are extremely valuable learning moments for young people, ”said Kevin Farr, MAVA Executive Director, in a statement.

The association said the April 1 guidelines require schools’ culinary programs to follow state guidelines for restaurants and provide disinfection stations, and encourages them to continue to offer online orders for roadside collection.

Cosmetic programs that must meet state standards for personal services in close contact may offer limited services, with protective gear worn by students and masks required for patrons.
