Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) issued an order on May 22 which allowed reopening of salons outside containment zones only. The civic body presented strict social distancing norms for barbers’ shops/beauty parlours. Salons operating from legal buildings with proper water connections only, will have permission to operate. Barbers have been directed to install foot-operated or no-contact sanitizer dispenser. Only one customer can be given service if there are two chairs and two customers are allowed if there are five chairs in the barber shop. Appointments must be booked over the phone to avoid crowding and customers are encouraged to bring their own towels.
