Just a heads up…

Reopening dates could still change and people can continue to book appointments through the online booking portal…

Appointments look to be filling up quickly, the current reopening date is May 9th…

Moving Target…

Executive Order 53 said no salon until April 24th…

Executive Order 55 strengthens EO53 and extends it until a June 11th opening date…

DPOR is currently claiming salons MAY be able to open on April 24th, but I’m not understanding how that’s possible with the information in EO53 and EO55.

The stay-at-home order in place makes certain breaking of social distancing a misdemeanor (punishable by up to a year in jail and/or up to a $2,500 fine)…

It is unclear to me how hair salon appointments could be an exception since it requires one-on-one physical contact in order to perform services…

I am uncomfortable going back into salon before the threat level is sufficiently low for myself and my clients…

If I go into salon early and I become infected by a client or co-worker then I will infect countless clients before I even show symptoms.

I am not willing to risk the health and safety of my clients with an early return…

I currently plan on not being in salon until EO55 is over.
