Barbershops - MONTCO Today
Hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, many local hair salons and barbershops are still waiting to receive any kind of government assistance as they struggle to survive. Image via The Daily Local News.

Once salons and barbershops restart serving customers, most of them will implement significant safety changes to ensure their patrons feel safe while visiting their facility, writes Marc Weber Tobias for Forbes.

Among other things, these changes will include legal waivers, the spacing between customers, a reduced number of people allowed in at the same time, and more sanitary materials.

Further adjustments will also be implemented to promote the health, security, and safety of both staff and customers.

Waivers of legal liability for staff may regulate issues including ensuring that people who have been sick and coughing are not coming into work, taking the daily temperature of the entire staff, and insisting that every team member wears a mask and gloves at all times.

All these changes prompted by the coronavirus pandemic will profoundly change the salon and barbershop experience and will likely set the minimum standards going forward.

And while they are necessary, they will also come with a significant economic cost, in terms of increasing the expenses required to implement any operational changes as well as other charges to better safeguard their clientele.
