Salons fear for safety as they reopen considering the state’s guidelines
Columbus Salon owner Evan Joseph and co-owner Brain Deal said that the announcement that the salons will reopen from May 15 shocked them as they were expecting it to be earlier.
The reopening of salons will be allowed, but only for salons following all the guidelines that were created by the government and an advisory group of stylists, owners, and more.
But according to Joseph and Deal, they not even heard of any such advisory group; otherwise, they would have tried to be a part of the group.
According to an online petition launched Friday, the man said that the guidance is somewhat incomplete, and the state needs a better framework to reopen.
Deal and Joseph are worried about their employees and customer as, at this time, it is vital to be safe. They are especially concerned about the issue that employees have to wear a mask and not clients.
According to guidelines, it is almost impossible to maintain social distancing as a salon has a workspace, lobby, break room, office, etc.
They feel that the other stylists think the same and fear going back to work, but they are forced to go to work due to economic pressure. These times had also put a very high financial strain on independent stylists and small salons.
But they had continued to pay their employees through all the difficult times.
