The partition may contain a door, provided it remains closed, except for entering and leaving.
(j) If a room used for any business purposes other than permanent color, tattooing, or body piercing is the same room or is adjacent to a room used for the practice of permanent color, tattooing, or body piercing, then the board may require that one or more of the following requirements be satisfied if there are conditions that the board considers a possible threat to the health of the employees, the customers, or the public:
