Scenes from Georgia's cautious reopening: Lines start early for haircuts

By Alexis Stevens, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
They needed a trim, and couldnít wait any longer. For the the first time in weeks, some Metro Atlanta hair salons and barbershops reopened Friday. And the lines started early.

The first phase of Gov. Brian Kempís plan to reopen Georgia during the coronavirus pandemic included haircut shops and gyms, though not all chose to open their doors.

1. The haircuts really don't surprise me

Not that you can distance. It was the one thing I really didnít have in my list knowing we were probably going to get sent home.

3. Mine is currently at about the level it was when I was a senior in high school.

In another month or two, without tonsorial intervention, it'll reach college level.

...someone who would never have to worry about going bald.

11. I feel like absolute crap not being able to work out

But the last thing I am going to do even when the shutdown is lifted is go to a gym.

6. The Atlanta mayor disagrees, but can't legally overrule the governor's idiotic plan

From an April 20th article in the AJC -- What to know about Kempís decision to ease coronavirus restrictions:
Q: Can cities and counties make more lenient or restrictive measures if they want?
A: No. The governor said he didnít want another ďhodgepodgeĒ of local restrictions that proliferated before he instituted the statewide shelter-in-place earlier this month, and his statewide order supersedes any city or county measure. Some local leaders quickly pushed back. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms told ABC News late Monday that while she likely canít lockdown the city, she will use her pulpit to press residents to stay at home. ďWe don't know what the governor is looking at, but what I do know is we have nearly 19,000 people who have tested positive as of this evening,Ē she said.

The map of Novel Coronavirus deaths in Georgia at this link shows county-by-county totals:

These numbers are almost certain to shoot up over the next few weeks as more and more people start ignoring the social distancing guidelines. Inexcusable.

12. "Atlanta" isn't. Neither all business owners nor by far most of

its half million residents (Just those within city limits).

One business owner:
"I said, 'No, absolutely not. Get your hair done for what?'" Watkins said. "There's a pandemic, people are dying. As much as I love the business, now is not the time, regardless of who says it is."


Terrible situation for those owners for whom staying closed means ruin now that GA's state government is forcing them to choose.

15. Maybe turn off the boob tube. Have you forgotten all those

who started self isolating weeks BEFORE states called for it? Just one little clue.

When I looked over a chart showing dramatic drops in restaurant reservations, I noticed that the earlier slowdowns, before what happened around 3/16 to cause them to plummet across the nation, were in cities I expected to have more older, higher-risk people.

Big surprise? We're steeling ourselves to cut each others' hair.

14. Van Michael salon is in Loeffler's neck of the woods

(That was the salon mentioned in the article that has clients signing a liability waiver, glaring grammatical error and all!)

It's an upscale salon that's made gobs of money forever, and yet they can't manage to stay afloat a little longer until things are safer?

Other salons are staying closed, including their sorta-nemesis, Jamison Shaw.

17. clients can't wear a mask when getting a haircut.

They can still spread corona all over the barber and salon. The masks the barber wears isn't really the kind that is protecting him. Really dumb. No one died from not getting a haircut. It's possible now for someone to die from getting one.
