KC gyms and salons draw long lines, limit offerings amid reopening

As salons and gyms opened in the Kansas City area this week, long lines were common outside the businesses, the Kansas City Star reports.

Customers in some areas had to wait for over an hour for a salon appointment.

In Johnson County, Kansas, salons opened by appointment only, and gyms opened without group classes or locker rooms operating.

Customers were still required to stay six feet apart and were encouraged to wear face masks.

In some salons, clients had to sign waivers certifying that they don’t have any coronavirus symptoms and haven’t been exposed to the virus.

Salons have added extra safety precautions, such as crews cleaning every 30 minutes and canceling shampoos and blow-dries.

“We are being very cautious, and there is plenty of room for them to spread out for social distancing,” Connie Suss, owner and founder of Bijin Salon & Spa told the Star.

At gyms, patrons are encouraged to wear face masks and clean equipment before and after use.
