SALISBURY, Md. – Tanning salons, nail salons and tattoo parlors are just some of the businesses that were allowed to reopen in Maryland on Friday starting at 5 p.m.
On Friday, 47 ABC spoke with the owners of the Salisbury nail salon “Happy Nails & Toes”. They say the most noticeable change they’ve made is putting Plexiglas dividers up at the manicure stations. They tell us they’re completely booked with appointments but they’re only allowing five customers and five technicians inside at a time.
We asked them if those capacity limits will hurt their business and here’s what they had to say: “We’re okay with it. But the thing is when we were shutdown nobody could work. So that’s a problem. But right now I’m happy because we have five technicians and that’s all we can do. Five people at a time. So that’s our limit,” says Billy Quang, the owner of Happy Nails & Toes.
The owners say they use a different set of completely sanitized and sealed tools for each customer and also use disposable plastic liners for pedicure tubs. Everyone is required to wear a mask inside the salon and if a customer doesn’t have one, they can get one for free from the salon.
