KPIX-TV Interview With Bishops Santa Clara
California has rolled back its progress with re-opening phases in the wake of increased Covid-19 virus spread. Santa Clara County was one of the last jurisdictions given the go-ahead to continue to “Phase 3”, which includes safely opening “personal services of high risk,” examples like barbershops, hair salons, and tattoo parlors. Santa Clara county opened July 13th and was quickly closed the next day. While the state had one of the lowest Covid-19 transmission rates early on in the pandemic, recent spiking numbers alarmed state government enough to reverse paths. Bay area news station KPIX-TV checked in with several area businesses affected after news of the rollback announcement, including Bishops Santa Clara. Reporter Len Ramirez interviewed stylists Ashley and Jacqueline on their thoughts below.
Safety for clients and staff is critical when the shop is allowed to re-open with the shop previously ramping up Covid19 procedures. Contact info for tracing, temperature checks, installation of vinyl dividers, and required mask use for everyone are just a few of the new methods that the shop has taken in a post-pandemic reality to do their part to stem transmission. For now, hair services will have to wait. Follow their Instagram account for the latest updates.
