Lamont: Hair salons, barber shops no longer opening Wednesday
19 May 2020
Gov. Ned Lamont reversed course on Monday and announced hair salons and barber shops will not reopen on Wednesday, but instead in early June when similar Rhode Island establishments are scheduled to reopen.
Lamont said in a joint announcement with Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo that after "extensive discussions" with business owners and employees, "he feels that it is in everyone’s best interests to provide for some additional preparation time and also align the state with its regional partners."
