When Will Bury Hairdressers Re-open?
Bury Hairdressers and other personal care services are set to return in 12th April at the earliest.
High up that list for many will be trips to the hairdresser.
Covid restrictions have forced us to get creative when it comes to keeping our hair in check, with most people going one of two ways – let it grow or attempt an audacious home-style.
But how long will we have to wait to get a professional hairdo? Here is everything you need to know.
When could BURY hairdressers reopen?
Boris Johnson has unveiled the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, which will see restrictions lifted in four stages.
Lockdown will be lifted in four steps, with the first step split into two major milestone dates, on 8 and 29 March, and will be England-wide, meaning there will be no return to the regional tiered system.
The first step will see the reopening of schools as well as outdoor after school sports and activities from Monday 8 March.
Two people from different households will also be allowed to socialise in a park or other public outdoor space by having a coffee or picnic – activities not currently permitted under the outside exercise rule.
From 29 March, the Rule of Six will return outdoors, in time for the start of the Easter school holidays, with a major easing of the limits on social contact, underlining that the risk of transmission outside is significantly lower than indoors.
Hairdressers and other personal care services are set to return under step two of the roadmap, which will begin no earlier than 12 April.
Other outdoor settings including zoos and theme parks will also reopen at the same time. While pubs, restaurants and cafes will be able to serve food and drinks outdoors to groups of six or from two households.
The timetable is dependent on four tests being met.
- the vaccine deployment programme is continuing successfully – including the flow of supplies;
- evidence shows vaccines are sufficiently effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated;
- infection rates do not risk a surge in hospitalisations which would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS;
- the government’s assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new “variants of concern”.
