Worker Safety at Salons and Barbershops

Dr. Linda Forst, senior associate dean, was interviewed by the Daily Herald on reopening plans of salons and barbershops.  She cautioned safety measures to protect customers won't necessarily protect workers in a shop for an entire day.  The best path forward is for customers to self-regulate based on their own health and exposure to people with COVID-19, she said.

If you’re a customer and you come in and out of the hair salon, it’s maybe 40 or 60 minutes. But the stylist is standing there for six hours or 12 hours at a time.
