A beauty salon in London has reopened after being closed for the past week because of the recent coronavirus pandemic, it has been revealed.
The Shops in the Park at The Woodlands, a popular shopping precinct in the capital, reopened on Sunday after a five-week closure due to the coronaviral outbreak, which killed at least 14 people.
The owners of the popular salon, which has been in operation for almost three decades, said the shop was closed because the risk of infection from the virus was too high.
The staff of the salon have been tested and tested again and have come back positive for coronaviruses.
But the owners of Shops In The Park at Woodlands have now announced they will reopen on Tuesday, which they have described as a ‘happy moment’ for the community.
The salon, a former beauty salon with a focus on hair, was one of the busiest in the country and had been open from 11am to 4pm daily since October.
It has been open for a month, but on Tuesday morning, staff received the notification that it would be closed, a spokesman for the owner of the business told the Mirror newspaper.’
The shop is now open, and we are delighted to have this news,’ the spokesperson added.’
Our staff have been testing and have tested again, so we have come to the conclusion that the risk from the coronvirus is too high to continue opening.’
We will be opening at 7am tomorrow morning, and our shop will remain open until 7pm.’
As we know, the risk is too great for our community to continue being open in the dark and the risk that someone could get infected is too much.’
All staff at the shop have been asked to wear masks and stay indoors.’
Shops In the Park is a popular place to visit for people who love and care about beauty and for people looking to learn how to apply a product.’
It is so important that we are all in a safe place to enjoy this special day.’
There are many people who work at the Shops who will be delighted to be able to reopen their doors tomorrow, as they are very proud of their work and have worked so hard to make it a safe and welcoming place.’
This is the happiest day in the shop’s history.’
Staff at the salon will remain in a constant state of readiness, and will be providing support to those who have been affected by the coronacids outbreak.’
Any staff affected by this virus need to remain calm and have the support of their colleagues.’
The Shapes, a London-based beauty salon chain, also announced on Monday that it was closing its doors, with owners saying that they had not been informed of the reason for the closure.
A spokesperson for Shapes said: ‘Our shop has been a wonderful, vibrant and community-based community, and its closure was never in the works.’
However, we have been informed by staff that the closure of our shop is no longer in the cards and that the Shapes is now in the process of opening a new salon.’
Unfortunately, this has taken us by surprise, and as a result, we are no longer able to provide any further updates on this front.’
The closure comes as thousands of people continue to suffer with respiratory illnesses from the ongoing coronaviolid virus outbreak, with more than 400 cases in the United States alone.
In addition, the government has announced that it will begin paying a one-time fee of £20 for anyone who is infected with the coronavalirus, a measure that is expected to help to ease pressure on NHS hospitals across the country.
However, many businesses are also facing the threat of closure.
On Monday, it was revealed that the owner and two other owners of a beauty salon were charged with conspiracy to commit arson after the owners allegedly set fire to a neighbouring business in London.
The men allegedly set the fire at the Westfield East, in Walthamstow, on December 5, 2017.
A number of other businesses have also been affected and have since reopened.
