Guidelines for hair salons and barber shops continue.
Among the recommendations are that workstations and equipment in use remain at two metres (six feet) and/or are equipped with barriers/dividers of an adequate height to ensure protection between clients and staff.
At traditional Eby’s Barber Shop in Port Elgin (Saugeen Shores), where generations of Ebys have cut hair for more than 125 years, all the protocols are being closely followed with only one customer in the shop at one time followed up with extensive sanitizing.
Public Health also recommends that alcohol-based hand sanitizer with a minimum of 70 per cent alcohol concentration be available at each work station with staff and clients encouraged to use it frequently.
Magazines, brochures, decors and other unnecessary items should also be removed and there should be individual products and tools at each work station.
