Good news for salon owners, stylists, and customers: the Alabama Department of Public Health has issued an updated order that offers additional clarification of how COVID-19 prevention practices impact these businesses.

The ADPH and Alabama Board of Cosmetology previously issued an order that said all stylists and customers had to maintain a six-foot distance between one another; however, the recent order states that the six-foot separation must be maintained between salon clients.

Lori Linn, owner and operator of Tuscaloosa salon Hair, Etc. posted the order she received on Facebook.
