My barber wore a mask and latex gloves when I got my last haircut. He sterilized the scissors and comb and wiped down the barber chair.
In his shop, each barber has a separate cubicle. There is a barrier between each customer. The barbers cannot even see one another as they cut hair.
I felt safe and, as reasonable precautions go, was safe. I was certainly far safer than anyone on public transit.
His shop has been closed down for weeks. He's taken a financial hit. Keep him shut down and he'll go out of business.
That is insane. Set some safety standards and let him return to work.
If he re-opens tomorrow I'll be there.
