On Monday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that most capacity restrictions on businesses will be lifted across the state. This includes food services, retail, gyms, fitness centers, amusement parks, entertainment, hair salons, barbershops, and offices by May 19. “The cosmetology students in our area have not been able to have hands-on experience through this year, so I think that it is really important to be able to offer that to the community as a little bit of a step by step for their growth in their future,” said Strands Salon Owner Lindsay Crance.
Under 75% capacity, the salon can bring in 3 student shadows, under 100% they can bring in up to 6 students according to Crance. Source www.mytwintiers.com
Crance said that she is not sure when they will make the choice to re-open to 100% capacity.
Cuomo said, “They may make their own economic decisions.” The choice to open capacity on May 19th is ultimately on the owner of the business.
