Now that restrictions are beginning to ease, Canberra has a unique opportunity to lead the nation by welcoming customers back in a safe and tailored approach.
Candice Burch, Canberra Liberals MLA
In this crucial time, the Canberra Liberals believe the key principle must be to keep staff and customers safe. The ACT Government must be looking for ways for businesses to safely reopen, not finding excuses to stay closed.
We want to see Canberra’s beauty, massage, wellness and personal services providers reopening as soon as possible.
One way to do this is for the ACT Government to allow beauty, massage and personal services to operate with the same limitations as hairdressers. This includes the usual hygiene practices now in place for all businesses, physical distancing where possible, and keeping a record of contact details for customers.
Please let us know if you support this approach, or have other suggestions.
