Whether you own a barbershop, nail salon, restaurant, or any other facility, the safety of your employees and customers is of the highest importance. At the same time, you don't own and operate a business because just for fun — you also do it to earn a living. The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a financial crunch and a real dilemma for most small business owners.
As we all begin eyeing reopening, one thing is for certain: business will look a little different than before. For most — if not all — barber shops, nail salons, and restaurants, this means having safeguards and practices in place to protect your employees, protect your customers, and ensure all parties that you are taking the necessary steps to achieve all of the above.
Let's take a closer look at a few steps business owners should take prior to reopening.
Create a Plan for Your Restaurant, Barbershop, or Nail Salon
When it comes to creating a plan for reopening your business, one-size-fits-all solutions rarely work. Instead, it's best to create a plan specific to your worksite. Restaurants, salon owners, barbershops, and other service facilities should base their reopening practices on the Occupational Safety and Health Act Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19. A few key steps include:

Whether it's a nail salon, barber shop, massage parlor, or restaurant, all employees should wear personal protective equipment. As a business owner, it's up to you to make the right equipment available to your employees.

Face shields also help prevent facial touching. Because face shields create a barrier, it causes the wearer to make an extra consideration prior to touching their face.
