It is not an essential, same as beauty salons, spas.

You're just being facetious about barber's and hair salons/spas should actually be considered "essential"...right?

My wife considers the hair salon and nail salon to ESSENTIAL.

However, she's also applying good judgement by staying away until the crisis is over.

Love it -- "The Corona Cut". Remember those photos from China of years ago when all the males pictured had the same hair cut ? Here we go. My wife is so desperate she was even willing to let me cut her locks -- like I would EVER want to live with the aftermath of that action !

I'm actually enjoying my VA phone appointments. It sure beats having to drive to the clinic 35 minutes each way. (I am very good at not leaving my house for days.)

I read that even animal hospitals were having difficulty being classified as Essential Businesses. So hair/nail salons? Totally non-essential. It's temporary, folks. No need to be so high maintenance. Throw your hair in a ponytail and go on with your day.
And stay the fluff home!

Cal's isn't owned by "the family"..I believe it's a woman that owns it or she and her husband. Can't recall the name however.

The golf shops have a no contact policy with scanners and no tickets. They don't touch your cards. There are only foursomes in a tee time. Most are all driving in separate carts. There are no rakes in the sandtraps to touch. The holes on the greens are now covered with pvc pipe so balls do not go into the holes and no one touches the flag stick. No one stays for any lunch or drinks afterwards. No shaking hands. It is probably the safest of any of our sports. Very little interaction.

I'm desperate for a haircut but I'd have had to be stupid to sit down in one of those shops over the last few weeks. Going to have to try a DIY.
I thought about the same things and my Barber had shut down. He has reopened and I went today after talking to him yesterday. This is what he has done.
1. He wears a mask.
2. He has all appointments booked online at his Facebook page which can be found by searching American Barber Shop Summerfield.
3. He doesn't allow anyone else in his shop other than you while you get your haircut and he is the only one giving the haircuts and he is only using 1 chair.
4. He washes his hands between each person that comes through rather then using gloves which protects individuals better and if supply's last at request he will use gloves, as well as disinfecting his outside and inside doorknob after each individual leaves.
5. He has a vacuum operated pair of clippers which reduces dramatically any hair falling on the floor and has 30 minute windows to be able to sanitize etc between each haircut.
6. He sanitizes his clippers, combs and anything else that would be a part of the haircut for every individual.
7. He lets you choose if you want to wear a cape and doesn't re-use any but has fresh ones for each individual coming in.

This isn't a professional opinion just my opinion and I work in an industry that understands the times and being sanitary.

That's great that he he is trying to do his very best (but personally I'd still keep away). Does he fully disinfect the chair? What that CERTAINLY does NOT describe is "CALS" operation. and while he is doing his best he has absolutely no idea what his CUSTOMERS may have done or have been. He's doing his best but that wouldn't be good enough for me (or my wife) at this time of our lives. He's way too close for my comfort but he does deserve kudos for trying.
