On Friday, May 15 Virginia went into Phase 1 of reopening.   I went to Great Clips near me and had my haircut yesterday.   I booked my appointment online and waited in my car.   The hair staff came out and got me.   Everyone, the hair staff and customers wore masks.   When I was getting my haircut,  I removed the straps of the mask from my ears and held the mask to my nose and mouth.   Great Clips was so busy.   Great Clips was already setup with a small wall/parttion between the hair stations.  My hairstylist was great, very sweet and she was happy to be back to work.   I just wanted to share how things are in Virginia.   Peace and Blessings to all.   Tallgal.

Just passing on information about wearing masks......never touch the front of the mask, put it on and remove it by the ear loops. Wash your hands immediately after removing.

I’m happy to hear this and wish your state the best. We can learn how to do this for the good of everyone!

You are sooooo lucky! We live in Northern Virginia and were all set to make an appointment to get our haircuts when we were excluded from Phase 1. 😕 I wear my hair in a pixie cut and usually get it cut every 5 weeks. As a result, it's very healthy and grows very fast. I was due for a trim right before the salons were closed, so I missed my chance. My hair hasn't been this long in over 30 years. If it's dry out, my hair's top heavy. If it's humid, just call me Curly Top. Oh well, this too shall pass. Other than feeling scruffy, we're ok. 

ETA:  DH just came out, stood in front of me and said, "Eileen, have you seen your hair?"  It wasn't a compliment.

@Eileen in Virginia  I feel your pain. My area is excluded too.

Not all of Virginia is in Phase 1... I do wonder when No. Va. will get a taste of freedom... I believe the governor, such as he is, had originally said it was all or nothing but I believe he was more or less forced to look at the preponderance of indicators saying those areas nearest DC weren't ready... Best to err on the side of caution, but it's been a long time...

@stevieb In my case the local leaders asked to governor to exclude us. I don't know why. I don't follow the numbers that closely. It wouldn't matter to me anyway. We are excluded...period.

@esmerelda  I think that was more or less the case across the board for all the more northern counties, despite that he originally said he wanted an all or nothing opening... I'm not really following the details either because it is what it is and when we open, I'm sure I'll know about it... Right now, we're not and as tiresome as it is, it's probably best, though some indication of when we might re-open would be a little uplifting

he probably should have done what the maryland governor did.

he put maryland in phase 1 and then a few individual counties decided not to adopt the phase 1 recommendations just yet.

 

yes, it has felt like a very long time.......
