How long do you think hair salons will be closed in San Luis Obispo?

It appears it will be months. It just seems so unfair as all the bars and restaurants are open downtown outside packed beyond measure. And the one seating area down town is packed with no social distancing for eating. So not fare for sure. So why do hair salons have to suffer? Our dentist friend said they could wear ppe like dental workers and be ok.

Salons opened here when restaurants and smaller retail stores opened.

Iíve been twice so far to get my nails done, and Iím going again on Tuesday. Itís a small salon, so maybe thatís the difference. Only two workers, and they donít usually work the same days & times. It has always only been me and the owner. We wear masks. Iíve felt very comfortable.

I'm surprised that bars are open if salons aren't. I would think a salon would be a safer bet. I'm not planning to go to either type of place, but I do need to go to two doctor's appointments coming up.

I found news stories dated July 21 that said salons in California were allowed to offer services outdoors when that is possible for them. There were the same health safety guidelines that existed when they briefly reopened. Do any salons in your town provide outside services?

Not all salons have the outdoor space available and equipment would make it difficult to do more than a dry haircut. Restaurants can serve outdoors while the cooking goes on indoors. Contact between server and customer is minimal and open air. In salons, contact is prolonged, close, and indoors. It's the nature of the business and not about fairness.

I hate how hard this has been on salons and other businesses. It does seem that many Americans regard salons as personally essential businesses. Now we understand why our great great grandmothers had their hair in braids and wrapped up on their heads!

I cannot see how indoor dining and bars are open but hair salons are not. They are open in my state. I went in July and it was fine.
Susan in NJ, I hope not! Thereís still no indoor dining and two places have already closed in my town.

I believe knitting said the bars and restaurants are only open for outdoor business.

Bars are not allowed to be open. Please report this to the public health department. Bars are one of main reasons California was shut down a second time.

Hair salons can open outdoors. I am surprised ones in SLO are not.

I wish there was a way we could limit people from traveling from county to county. SLO has low numbers and there is a good chance you could be off the watch list soon. BUT as soon as you are - idiots from LA county will go up there because things are open and you will end up on the watch list again.

Do you know this website?

https://www.emergencyslo.org

This is a hub of all SLO-related covid info.

It also has a list of what is and is not open.

https://www.emergencyslo.org/en/reopening.aspx

Bars should not be open. Hair salons may operate outdoors.

I agree that it's unfair to single out the hair salons. Both bars and hair/nail salons have been the biggest culprits in Covid outbreaks.

Here in San Diego bars can only operate if customers sit at a table 6 feet apart from others, indoors and outdoors. The customers can only consume alcohol if they simultaneously eat a meal. So no sidling up the bar or standing around close to each other with a drink in your hand. In some areas of the city people abuse the distance rules, but if the bar is caught, it will be forced to close and suffer heavy fines.

Hair stylists work much closer than 6 feet. They are only allowed to operate if they can move outdoors. My stylist has her own little one-person shop, and has transformed one of her two parking spaces into an outdoor salon of sorts. I have to wash my hair in advance, and she only cuts it. No blowdrying. At least, not yet, until she figures out a way to do it without all sorts of electric cords getting in the way.

Yes! We were driving home yesterday (I'm in SB) and there was so much traffic heading south. I was commenting to dh how we need a way to keep all of the LA/OC people out so they don't bring it with them!

I posted this to a different thread:

I went to high school with my hairdresser--she lives around the corner in my sub. Her salon is closed, but she has been coming to client's homes and with both wearing masks, she does your hair on your patio.

Would your hairdresser be willing to do this?

Any hairdresser who doesn't abide my state regulations risks permanently losing her/his license.
