Getting a COVID-Safe Haircut

Description (Dublin Core)

With COVID-19, even things as simple as getting a haircut were never the same. The photo above shows what that looked like.

In Bahrain, where I live, hairdressers were closed down in March and were only reopened months later.

When they finally did, patrons and customers had to abide by certain restrictions.

There was only a fixed number of customers allowed in. Body temperatures had to be taken. Contact details had to be provided for the purposes of contact tracing in case anyone was exposed to the virus.

Masks and face shields were mandatory for the persons giving the haircuts.

Moreover, many people seem to not want to handle cash, and as a result, cashless payments are more popular than ever.

This reflection was submitted as part of the HIST30060 Making History project at the University of Melbourne.
