ANOTHER MPORTANT DIMESION TO FOCUS ATTENTION :
SO THE FIRST TIME PRACTICE OF USE AND THROW AWAY BLADES CAME INTO BEING IN THE BARBER SHOPS . The practice is still being followed.
That was only from the Tool used in the Barber shop . But today we are exposed with a severe mode of transmission of Covid19 through Barber shops . Many of us wouldn’t have realized that our attention in the shop on and off is diverted towards the T.V. or the ever interesting conversation between the dressers and customers.
What we have to be conscious is :
* HOW CLOSE THEIR FACE IS TO OURS, CLOSER IT IS MORE CHANCE OF AEROSOLS FROM DRESSER’s BREATH OR COUGH TO CUSTOMER AND VISE VARSA.
*VERY OFTERN THEY TAKE INSTRUCTIONS FROM US OR ANSWER US STAYING CLOSE TO OUR EAR TO AVOID THE OTHER CUSTOMER LISTENING.
* WE HARDLY COUNT THE NUMBER OF TIMES HE COUGHS .
* HOW MANY TIME HE TAKES HIS HANDS TO HIS FACE .
He may be infected or bearing some from the immediate last customer , so the following to be observed :
# The number of chairs to be placed adequately .
# No need to dispose the tools as that will be another problem in the accumulating Bio non degradable Garbage – Instead each and every Tool to be sanitized before and after use .
# The hair stylist compulsorily wear a Mask
# wash hands before and after every Customer .
# Strictly washed linen to be used for each customer .
# Avoid making conversation with the customer in close quarters . Doubts can be cleared keeping a distance .
WE ARE MISSING OUR GRANDMOTHERS TODAY TO INFORM AND WARN US . That is when our Grandmothers and mothers asked us to have a bath as soon as we come from the Barber . Hair dressing was always in the morning and on a holiday (Saturday ). They didn’t have the Scientific terminology , COVID19, H1N1 etc ,
BUT DEFINITELY HAD THE FORESIGHT OF INFECTION FROM COMMON PLACE . There were many other Practices each had a meaning .

Where as, utmost importance has been given to the distance maintanance in addition to wearing a mask to avoid an infection of the virus. A technique of providing the services at barbar shops by maintaining the required distance is yet to be developed and till then the chances of getting infected thereat despite observing other precautions remain unresolved. more
