I have a salon 10 minutes north of Boston and I received 1 cancellation today from a client, her child was exposed to the coronavirus and they were self quarantining. I believe there will be many more to come since schools are cancelled, there will be child care problems as well as financial issues. Health is most important for clients & staff. We have upped our sanitation and ask clients/staff with symptoms to reschedule appts etc.
Yes. I live in a beach town heavily reliant on tourism and the local economy is being hit really hard. My clients are being laid off/having hours cut and are beginning to cancel their appointments. As of today, many businesses have closed.
Yes, we are seeing a LOT of cancellations, our book for the upcoming week has dropped by at least half. People are afraid to leave their houses for “unnecessary” appointments and really just taking extra precaution when it comes to the virus. We are located in Central Jersey.
