After the community quarantine gets lifted in some places in the United States, some establishments have gone back to business. One of the establishments that received the green light is the dog grooming shops. This means dog owners can now have their dogs cleaned after almost two months of a secluded life.
Despite the green light, the US government still warned people to be cautious all the time. It got previously announced that dogs are not susceptible to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). But a recent finding proved otherwise since a dog tested positive from the deadly virus. This is why it is still important to observe physical distancing.
The lifting of closures is a welcome development for small business owners like pet shops. Most of the owners, however, are still going to observe protocols to avoid the possible spread of the disease.
Bethany English, owner of the Fluffy Puppy Salon in Indianapolis, opened her shop right away. She said that she received calls from her clients who wanted to avail of her grooming services. Bethany said that she has a full schedule in the upcoming weeks. She, however, also mentioned that she limited her bookings as a matter of choice. This is Bethany’s contribution to defeating the possible spread of the deadly virus. For Bethany, the safety of her customers is her top priority and not profit.
The salon owner mentioned that instead of five groomers inside her shop, she would only allow three at a time. This is the new normal for Bethany. But she hopes that everything goes back to the previous norm not only for herself but also for her employees.
Aside from the abovementioned, Bethany also installed a plastic shower curtain. This is to serve as a barrier between her clients and her employees. This way, they are still practicing physical distancing.
