Mani, pedi bawal pa! Salon, barber shop ops limited only to hair-cutting
By Prince Golez
Barbershops and salons in areas under general community quarantine (GCQ) and modified GCQ can only offer hair-cutting services, according to Malacañang.
In a virtual Laging Handa public briefing on Saturday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the industry can begin to reopen in GCQ areas on June 7 at 30 percent operational capacity.
Salons and barbershops in areas under modified GCQ, on one hand, are allowed at 50 percent of operational capacity.
“Huwag po kayong masyadong ma-excite dahil limitado po ang mga barbero at mga salon sa paggugupit, wala pa ring facial, wala pa ring sa kuko, wala pa ring pagtatanggal ng mga eye brows; hanggang gupit lang tayo,” Roque reminded the public.
According to him, salons and barbershops in GCQ areas will be allowed to increase their operations to 50 percent two weeks from June 7. Those in MGCQ areas can operate at full capacity after three weeks.
“Sa ilalim ng GCQ pupuwede kayong magbukas pero hanggang 30% capacity lamang at magsisimula po ito sa ika-7 ng Hunyo. Matapos po ang dalawang lingo pupuwede pong ma-increase hanggang 50% ang inyong capacity.
“Ang mga barbero at salon sa MGCQ pupuwede na po hanggang 50% ang operating capacity at matapos ang tatlong lingo pupuwede na po ang 100%,” Roque said.
