Barber Shops and Beauty Salons to reopen in time for Mothers’ Day

Governor Asa Hutchinson announced today that Arkansas Barbers and Cosmetologists will be allowed to reopen with restrictions Wednesday, May 6. The reopening will occur just in time for Mothers’ Day.

The Governor stressed that this is just Phase I in reopening these facilities. Restrictions include no more than 10 or more fewer people in a facility for most facilities. Larger facilities will be allowed to work with no more than 30 percent of stations in operation.

No walk-ins will be allowed with all customers required to make an appointment. Clients should wait outside or in cars until ready. There will be a six foot distance between clients during appointments, in waiting area.

Businesses will be required to log client names and contact information to assist in tracking possible contamination if someone frequenting the facility does later test positive for COVID-19.

Vulnerable populations should consider staying home.

It was indicated that workers and clients will be required to wear masks when possible.

More guidelines will be made available through the Arkansas Department of Health’s website.

A webinar will also be made available for barber shops and beauty salons to help prepare for their reopening. The webinar will take place May 5, from 6-7:30 p.m.

We will update the article as more information is made available.
