Last week, there have been announced that restaurants and F&B outlets can start their work but with strict limitations considering the number of customers and working hours. Also, hotels and hair salons as a part of retail services have been defined as the “exempted sector”, which means have some specific regulations.
Restaurants and cafés are allowed to operate between 06:00 AM and 10:00 PM. At the same time, shisha and buffet are still not permitted to serve. Only single-use cutlery can be used at restaurants and cafes. Restaurants will still be allowed to provide food delivery services.
Now, hair salons and barbershops can start making appointments for hair and nail services. This includes haircuts, hair coloring, manicures and pedicures. Such services as waxing, eyebrow treatments, massages and facials will not be allowed to provide.
According to the latest regulations, beauty salons can operate with 30 percent of their staff at a time. Coupled with the regulations on opening hours and social distancing rules, with shops only allowed to operate at 30 percent capacity, some salon owners say that they are going to be booked out for weeks, with priority given to regulars.
Hotels will be allowed to operate without opening pools, gyms, sauna and massage parlors. Restaurants inside hotels and hotel apartments can serve guests, but only via room service or apartment delivery.
Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus which is causing illness in humans and animals. Most people infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus will feel mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without any special treatment. Older people, as well as those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness, and require immediate assistance. Novel Coronavirus was first identified in a cluster with pneumonia symptoms in Wuhan city, Hubei province of China, quickly spreading around the world. On early March 2020, the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic had officially started, becoming the defining global health crisis of our time. Today, it is the greatest challenge people have faced since World War II, worsened by subsequent lockdowns of whole countries, collapse of entire industries, and a major economic recession.
