Hair Salons and Barber Shops on Hold

Announced today, Governor Lamont has decided to delay the reopening of Connecticut’s hair salons and barber shops until sometime in early June.  The originally planned Phase 1 reopening for these businesses scheduled for May 20th is now on hold.  The rationale given for this decision is that Governor Lamont wants to allow for additional preparation time and to align the state with its regional partners. No further details regarding timeline have been released.  The WWHD will update residents as information becomes available.
