With Most Of The Country Fluctuating Between Tier 3 And 2, Are Beauty Salons Open?

On Thursday Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, confirmed the ‘stay at home’ order would end next Wednesday December 2, and gyms, non-essential shops and personal care can all reopen but what does this mean for each tier?

The above tweet is the generalised sentiment that many of us feel since the announcement of the new tier system yesterday by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The new, stricter system will see 99 percent of England in the top two alert levels of ‘high’ and ‘very high’.

We have known that the tiered system would make a comeback following the end of the national lockdown on December 2 but the logic behind which places belong to which tiers doesn’t seem to make sense and this is beginning to worry people as their business need to fully open again to survive.

The big question – are beauty salons open in Tier 3?

Yes they are allowed to open.

The Government has confirmed as part of its Covid winter plan, the ‘personal care’ sector is allowed to reopen.

This means hair, nail, and beauty salons across the country can begin operating again on December 2.

This will be a huge relief for those working in the beauty industry, which has been treated very poorly by the government through this pandemic.
