Gov. Whitmer Orders Salons, Spas, Tattoo Shops & More To Close Amid COVID-19 Outbreak
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is now ordering all hair salons, nail salons, spas, tattoo shops and more closed amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
The executive order signed today will take effect Sunday at 9 a.m. and continue until at least April 13th. These services include hair, nail, tanning, massage, spa, tattoo, body art and piercing services, and similar services that require individuals to be within six feet of each other.
"COVID-19 has created an unprecedented challenge to our way of life as Michiganders," said Gov. Whitmer. "That's why we are making decisions based on science and facts to protect public health and keep people safe. I know these changes will be hard, but they are temporary, and they are necessary to slow the spread of the virus and help save lives."
The order comes after Whitmer earlier closed bars, gyms, theaters and other large gathering places and ordered restaurants closed, except for carry out and delivery services.
