Safe for Pedicure?

This may be a silly question, but is it safe to get a pedicure now? The techs always wear a mask anyway, and itís not a crowd.

Iím thinking I should skip it, but, if itís safe, I want the people who run it to be able to still have income.

No.
Stay home means stay home.
Non-essential includes pedicures.

This is not a drill.
This is the real thing.

Please stay home. It's not just the breathing with a mask, it's all the surfaces you touch and they touch: door handles, arm rests, counter tops, exchanging money, etc. etc. I know they need the income, but their health (and yours) is more important right now.

I'm planning on ordering a light to do my own no chip manicures and working on developing my manicure skills Who knows? After all is said and done, I may learn to save a lot of money!
p.s. Anyone have a recommendation on the best light to order??
p.p.s I'm glad you're staying home!

but all masks are not the same. Most masks don't really protect people from the virus.

Safe??? Maybe. But please just say, "No." Why put your health and the health of others in jeopardy? If you are worried about their income, can you purchase an online gift card now to use in the future?

Stay home. Who cares these days if our toenails get a little grangly. Soak and trim them at home the best you can!

This isn't about trying to keep places in business right now. That's NOT the priority. We're trying to stay well and not die!

Stay home means stay home. A pedicure is not necessary. All salons, barber shops, tattoo parlors were just shut down in my state.

All those places were shut down in my area, too. I understand wanting to support those who aren't making money right now, but I think you made the right decision.

Is it safe? Nope. There are no guarantees and your health and the health of others depend on "flattening the cure".
