Men’s salons and women’s beauty centers allowed to reopen across Ras Al Khaimah
- Strict safety protocols must be followed before establishments can welcome customers
The Department of Economic Development has announced all men’s hairdressing salons and women’s beauty centers are allowed to reopen in Ras Al Khaimah from Thursday, May 28.
Before opening, rigorous safety standards must be implemented and all establishments must adhere to a series of strict safety protocols to curb the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) and safeguard public health.
This move comes as part of the Department’s commitment to find a balance between allowing economic activity to continue in the Emirate, while also protecting all members of the community.
Some of the conditions include mandatory Covid-19 testing for employees; staff must always wear masks and gloves; and waiting areas must be blocked off as customers will be welcomed only by appointment.
Other rules include ensuring only head hair can be cut at men’s salons; temporary separators must be placed between chairs; equipment must be sterilized frequently; and temperature checks will be carried out on customers, while those suffering from cold or flu symptoms will not be allowed to enter.
Department inspectors will verify compliance with the rules before allowing establishments to reopen and businesses will be subject to follow-up checks afterwards. Anyone found in breach of the rules will face fines or even closure.
