NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Salons and barbershops will reopen Wednesday with new guidelines in place.
The reopening only applies to businesses in 89 counties and does not include major cities like Nashville.
The state says as of now, salons and barbershops have the limit the number of customers to 50%. Workstations must also be six feet apart and there won’t be any gathering in the common areas.
The state also says both customers and stylist should wear masks.
Gov. Bill Lee said the plan to reopen the state is designed to “safely reboot” the economy, while keeping employees, employers and customers safe.
