Today, the BeautyCouncil met with the province of BC to be updated on the situation with COVID-19. We met with Hon. Ravi Kahlon, Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation, Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer, Anne Naser, CEO, WorkSafeBC, and Hon. Adrian Dix, Minister of Health.
✅ Bonnie Henry stated there are “no plans for a stay at home order or lockdown” at present
❗ Rumours of a shutdown are just that – rumours
💉 Presently, the province does not have the capacity to provide advance vaccinations for salons, spas, or barbershops
💪🏽 Adrian Dix reminded everyone in the workplace to pay extra attention to their COVID-19 safety plan
If you wish to report personal service establishments which are not following basic PHO orders, you can reach out to your local bylaw office. Not following orders could see offenders subject to fines – both for the establishment and patrons inside.
