The district administration today issued directions to barbershops and salons on maintaining hygiene and sanitisation in order to ensure safety from Covid-19.

Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan said the owners of barbershops and salons would have to ensure that any staff member having Covid-19 symptoms would stay at home and seek medical advice. Similarly, no client having such symptoms should be attended, he said.

Dayalan said apart from the owner and staff, clients should also wear a mask while availing of services. The owner should also ensure that there was no unnecessary crowding.

He said all guidelines related to the prevention of Covid such as frequent hand washing with soap or using sanitiser and maintaining physical distancing of one metre following respiratory hygiene and keeping a watch over symptoms should be followed. He said though the shop owners should encourage digital payment, in case of cash payment, the shopkeeper, staff and clients should sanitise hands before and after each transaction.

The Deputy Commissioner said indoor areas, including service rooms, waiting areas and workstations, should be cleaned every 2-3 hours and floors should be cleaned with one per cent sodium hypochlorite. He said the furniture and frequently touched surfaces and articles should be regularly cleaned/sanitised and most importantly, tools such as razors, scissors and combs should be wiped with one per cent sodium hypochlorite after every use.
