Governor Ned Lamont announced on Thursday (March 19), that he has issued an executive order directing the temporary closure of a number of service establishments.

As of 8:00 PM on Friday (March 20) all establishments rendering services by barbers, hairdressers and cosmeticians, nail technicians, electrologists, estheticians, eyelash technicians, and tattoo and piercing providers, including, but not limited to, barbershops, beauty shops, hairdressing salons, nail salons, spas, kiosks, and tattoo or piercing establishments are ordered to close to the public.

Governor Lamont says that the commissioner of Public Health may issue any order she deems necessary to implement or modify such prohibition without any further consultation.

“These are difficult decisions that are all meant to put public health first,” wrote Lamont.

As we continue to keep you updated on this information as it rolls in, it’s important to keep in mind that we will end up on the other side of this thing eventually, and we should do what we can to support local businesses as we all deal with these unprecedented times. Reach out to your local salons, restaurants, and mom-and-pop shops to see if perhaps you can purchase a gift certificate or two to use when the curve is flattened and we’re in the clear.
