PICK A SIDE: Should hair salons be allowed to reopen


Published June 5, 2020 at 6:56 pm


As the Province continues its phased reopening plan, more health-care-related businesses have been permitted to resume serving the public, including physiotherapy clinics, and dental practices.

While these aforementioned businesses have returned to serving the public, they have also implemented additional safety measures to ensure those who seek treatment can do so safely without risking their own health or the health of the staff.

In light of this, many people are wondering when hair salons will be permitted to do the same.

Those in support of reopening hair salons have pointed out they don’t present as much of a risk of spreading the virus as dental treatment does.

However, those opposed to it have also countered that dental treatment presents a much more immediate need for treatment than a haircut.

Further, some have said it presents an unnecessary risk for vainglorious reasons, while others have argued that allowing people to go to hair appointments wouldn’t be mandatory and people would be free to choose whether or not they utilized the service.

With Stage 1 of the Province’s reopening plan well underway, Doug Ford has said a decision to begin Stage 2 could come as soon as the middle of June.

So far, the Province has said it will consider reopening more businesses and workspaces, and permitting large gatherings during Stage 2, but it has not specified what kinds of businesses could be included.

So, Mississauga, what do you think?
