SANTA CLARITA — Stylist Cynthia Morgan twisted her customer’s hair Thursday for what may be the last time this month.
“I’m going to miss my customers,” she said. “They’re similar to family.”
Be that as it may, neither the potential conclusion nor the circumstance, are up to Morgan with Gov. Gavin Newsom reporting another stay-at-home request that will close numerous organizations if Southern California emergency clinics fall under a 15% edge in accessible emergency unit beginning Saturday.
As of Thursday, Southern California had 20.6% of ICU beds accessible, as indicated by the California Department of Public Health.
On the rundown of organizations that must close if that edge is met — boutiques. For Dazzling Beauty Salon in Santa Clarita where Morgan works, it will be the second conclusion since the pandemic began in March.
And keeping in mind that Morgan said she won’t miss the drive from Hesperia to Santa Clarita if the salon shuts, she’s stressed over the chance of getting destitute.
“I’m doing whatever it takes not to be amusing,” she said. “That is to say, I’m a solitary parent. I lost my better half — this month will be a year on the 14 — so I’m a solitary parent.”
Long-lasting customer Brigette Booker said she was not excited about the likely closure, she said she was eager to make the penance in the wake of seeing somebody near her pass on from the infection.
“I can’t see another adored one dying,” she said. “On the off chance that we as a whole put on a veil and simply follow the rules.”
Wellbeing authorities said the conclusion of salons, barbershops and numerous different organizations is key in keeping medical clinics from turning out to be overpowered this colder time of year.
Concerning Booker, she said she was at that point wanting to dig in with her chihuahua, Ginger, however much as could reasonably be expected until cases drop and an immunization is accessible to the general population.
“We simply need to lock in, and regardless of whether I’m completing my hair today, in the event that I need to return and get French meshes for an additional 7 months, I will,” she said.
In spite of the difficulty that could accompany another closure, the two customers and beauticians said everybody needs to do their part to stop the spread of the infection.
