Local Barbershop Has Proposed Plan to Reopen
When the salons and barbershops were shut down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, they all complied. Now shop owners are ready to reopen and one local barbershop has proposed a plan to show how they can safely do so. The Palace Barbershop has put together a proposal of how they can safely open up during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to News 10 ABC, the owner of the Palace Barbershop, Marlon Sousis, says that he is capable of putting the proper safety protocols in place for his shop to reopen.
Among the guidelines and safety protocols proposed in Sousis' outline includes a staggering of client appointments. He would take the temperatures of all clients and employees to abide by CDC guidelines. Gloves, masks, sneeze guards, and disposable capes will be used and worn along with bleaching of all towels used. There will be extensive sanitizing of tools and the shop. Electronic payment will also be accepted for safe transactions. To see the proposal click here.
Our son, Ryan, goes to the Palace Barbershop and sees Master Barber, Jeremy Shuhart. After reading through the guidelines that the barbershop is willing to follow, we would feel comfortable and safe bringing our nine-year-old in to get his hair cut. Hopefully, the governor will make a decision soon and these shops can be part of the first phase of the reopening process.
