All barbershops, hair salons, tattoo or piercing parlors, nail salons, hair removal services, and related personal care services will be closed to members of the public effective, as these services cannot be provided while maintaining social distance, officials say.
Thursday, the four governors announced indoor portions of retail shopping malls, as well as amusement parks and bowling alleys in the four states. Earlier in the week, the governors announced limits on crowd capacity for social and recreational gatherings to 50 people. The governors also announced restaurants and bars would close for on premise service and move to takeout and delivery services only. The governors also temporarily closed movie theaters, gyms and casinos.
