HLO preparing to move in early 2017
The Health Licensing Office is preparing to move into a new building early next year. We will remain in Salem, but we will be located on Tandem Avenue, off the Salem Parkway. The move is currently scheduled for early 2017 and will require us to be closed to the public for two or three days. As soon as we have more details, we will post them here, as well as on our HLO Facebook
page and the Board of Cosmetology Facebook page
. If you are planning to come to see us in the winter or spring for examinations, applications or renewals, be sure to check our website or our Facebook pages to confirm our address and that we will be open.
