Barbershops and Salons Now Allowed to Provide Service to Essential Personnel

Barbershops and salons in Maryland are now allowed to provide service to essential personnel, according to new guidance from the state of Maryland.
• The services performed must be necessary for the customer to meet grooming standards established by the customer’s employer.
• Appointments must be made (no walk-ins) and only one customer is allowed to enter at a time.
• Customers must provide the barbershop/salon with written documentation of employer’s grooming standards.
• Both the customer and barbershop/salon employee must wear face coverings.
• After each customer, the barbershop/salon must clean and disinfect the area where services were performed.
• The barbershop/salon must obtain telephone contact information for each customer. If any staff of the barbershop/salon tests positive for COVID-19, the barbershop/salon must promptly notify any customers who received services within a 14 day period preceding the positive test result.
Full order can be found here.

This concept may not apply for a lot of salons as only 1 client is allowed per establishment. It may not even be worth it for stylists to go back to work, or warrant the expenses of keeping the shop open.

Unless you are the owner of the shop, and personally have tons of clients in the essential field.

I rather it be several locations that health officials chose and deem it safe, and ask stylists to volunteer or at a set cost. Especially if this is for essential personnel.
