Following a recent spike in Covid-19 infection rates, the Prime Minister has announced a new ‘Tier 4’ for London and parts of the South East and the East of England.
This will come into force from Sunday 20th December.
Salons, barbershops and beauty parlours can continue to stay open in all Tiers 1-3 elsewhere in England.
In Northern Ireland, all close contact businesses must close on Boxing Day – for what will be a 6-week long lockdown, subject to a review after 4-weeks.
In Wales, all close contact businesses will shut on December 19th as part of a level 4 lockdown which will be reviewed in three weeks.
In Scotland, all beauty salons, hairdressers and barbers must close for three weeks from Boxing Day.
These are concerning times for all salons and barbershops throughout the UK, our thoughts are with each and every one of you at this difficult and challenging time.
