Move Salon/barbershop opening to phase 4 in Washington State

  • Washington state begins its 4 part phase Tuesday May 5th 2020. In the 4 part phase, Barbershops, Salons & Nails will be open again starting in Phase 2. This is seriously a bad idea as PPE has been hard for hospitals to obtain. & now hair & nail shops will have to figure out how to obtain that gear.
  • when washing, and doing bang trims, there’s no way for someone to not breathe the virus in your face. & that even hospital workers are getting this virus while wearing all the appropriate PPE gear which means your stylist can get sick and give it to multiple people and increase the speed of the spread. 
  • In phase 2, you can not gather with more than 5 people that live outside your home, PER WEEK. A barber will be TOUCHING twice that amount of people, EVERYDAY. Another good reason, is If you can not sit in a restaurant with more than 5 people at your table & half the place has to be empty. Do you think touching, 10+ Strangers a day, everyday, is safer? Not even a little bit.
  • Most salons/barbershops work on commissions meaning, they will be making at best, half of what they made before the pandemic, if they return that early. The idea to make us work again in phase 2 is to simply get us off unemployment. & I believe most of us if not all of us, would need partial unemployment. So returning to work would be not only a financial loss even more so than now, but potentially a huge life loss. Our jobs are now some of the highest risk for getting sick & spreading it.

Cases & deaths are on the rise everywhere, not just in Washington. & scientists are telling us another, bigger wave could come this fall. We need to make barbershops/salons/nails etc, open in phase 4. Please help me in making sure we & our communities are safe. 

Please Gov. Jay Inslee move barber & Cosmo to phase 4. For everyone’s safety & well being.
