Coronavirus limitations have forced us to get innovative with regards to holding our hair in line, with a great many people going one of two different ways – let it grow or attempt an audacious colouring.
Hairdressers and other personal care services are set to return on the 8th of April at the earliest, with barbers, beauty salons, nail technicians, and tattoo artists being advised to find out all they need to know about how to reopen safely through the council’s online safety event.
The personal care sector is likely to be able to open to customers on Monday, 12 April, and the webinar will advise how to do so safely. Cheshire West and Chester Council are holding a webinar for the personal care and beauty sector at 10.30 am on 8 April to outline the legal requirements, as well as what to do should there be an outbreak.
Topics to be covered will include rules on face coverings, collecting customer contact details, social distancing and hygiene, as well as how to look after staff facilities, such as break rooms or toilets, and advice on vehicle sharing.
There will also be information about what to do if a member of staff tests positive for COVID-19 along with a toolkit to help the employer through managing an outbreak, from employee testing and business contact tracing to self-isolation advice and information on financial support for people self-isolating.
The webcast will be streamed live at 10.30am on Thursday, 8 April, and will be available to watch again later. For more information visit: https://www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/reopeningwebinar.
