Haircuts, patio dining are back

More regions of the province entered stage 2 of the reopening framework on June 19.

York Region and six other areas can now allow restaurant patios and hair salons to welcome back clients and join the many other businesses that were given the green light to open earlier in June.

Local residents didn’t waste any time flocking to patios or getting a haircut after months of lockdown due to Covid-19.

MPP Paul Calandra got his first professional, post-Covid-19 haircut by senior stylist Rhonda Wilson at Headlines Salon, as York Region moves to Phase 2 of reopening.

“We’re excited to be back to work, serving our clients after this unfortunate hiatus,” says Marc Galati, Headlines’ co-owner.

The latest public health unit regions allowed to move into Stage 2 on June 19 were:

∙ Durham Region Health Department;
∙ Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit;
∙ Halton Region Health Department;
∙ Hamilton Public Health Services;
∙ Lambton Health Unit;
∙ Niagara Region Public Health Department; and
∙ York Region Public Health Services.

These regions are in addition to the 24 public health regions that entered Stage 2 on June 12. Before opening, business owners need to review the workplace safety guidelines and public health advice.

The following regions will remain in Stage 1 under ongoing assessment until trends of key public health indicators demonstrate readiness to move into Stage 2:

∙ Peel Public Health;
∙ Toronto Public Health; and
∙ Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.
