The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) allowed barbershops and salons to resume operations starting Sunday, June 7.
DTI Sec. Ramon Lopez stressed on Saturday, June 6, that barbershops and salons will need to sterilize their equipment, limit their customers to 30 percent of their normal capacity, and other guidelines issued by the government in order to resume operations.
“Bago ho sila magbukas ni-require natin na sundin nila iyong health protocol na inisyu natin two weeks ago para maka-prepare po sila sa pagbubukas,” Lopez said during the Laging Handa press briefing.
“Ito iyong mga pag-iingat ng mga equipment, sanitation, acrylic divider, iyong paggamit ng mga sterilizer para sa mga kagamitan nila, etc. So, ito ay ipai-implement na natin para makapag-open na; at saka ang puwedeng i-open 30 percent capacity nila sa mga barbershop and salon,” he added.
Barbershops and salons can also operate up to 50 percent of their original capacity of customers at areas under modified general community.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque also previously said that barbershops and salons can only offer haircuts since facial care, threading, manicure, and pedicure remain prohibited.
