As COVID-19 cases across Canada continue to rise, some provinces are taking matters into their own hands by enforcing stricter rules and more safety measures in select regions.
Unfortunately for salon owners, this means personal care services including hair salons, nail salons and barbershops are being ordered to temporarily shut down again in some provinces and regions. Here’s where salons are being forced to close:
On Friday, November 20th, the provincial government announced that hair salons, nail salons, barbershops and all personal care services in Toronto and Peel region will be closed as of Monday, November 23rd for a minimum of 28 days.
With new “level red” restrictions in place in Manitoba as of November 12th, hair salons, nail salons and barbershops are among other non-essential businesses that are being forced to temporarily close.
Currently, salons in Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta and other provinces continue to remain open, but stay tuned here for any additional updates and changes.
