The goal of the Tanning Inspection Program is to ensure cleanliness of tanning salons and to protect citizens from overexposure to ultraviolet radiation, which can cause skin irritation, burns, eye damage, and forms of cancer.
The program consists of initial inspections, change of ownership inspections, routine inspections, as well as complaint investigations. There are approximately 8 licensed tanning facilities currently operating in Macoupin County.
Tanning facility licenses are issued by the Illinois Department of Public Health. For more information, please contact Kristen McWeeny at (217) 839-4114.
