While barber shops, salons, massage therapy and tattoo business owners were relieved and excited to re-open their doors following a two-month closure due to the novel coronavirus, there have been a number of changes put in place to protect customers and employees as they interact.

Gov. Kim Reynolds lifted restrictions on salons, massage therapy and other businesses on May 15, but business owners and their employees are being held to compliance with safety guidelines implemented by the Iowa Department of Public Health.
