NH Retail Businesses, Hair Salons Allowed To Reopen


CONCORD, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Many businesses in New Hampshire are allowed to reopen on Monday under Gov. Chris Sununu’s revised Stay at Home order.

Under Stay at Home 2.0, industries that are allowed to begin reopening include retail businesses, drive-in movie theaters, public and private golf courses, and barbers and hair salons.

Retail establishments are allowed to reopen their physical locations as long as they continue to follow social distancing guidelines, including requiring all employees to wear face coverings at all times.

The number of people in stores must also be limited to 50 percent or less capacity based on New Hampshire’s Building and Fire Code.

Hair salons, barbershops, and other cosmetology businesses are also allowed to reopen their physical locations. Among the safety guidelines laid out by the state, all staff and clients must wear a face covering, and services must be limited to haircuts and root touch-up color services. However, blow-drying of hair is not allowed.

Golf courses are also allowed to reopen for members and New Hampshire residents. However, the courses must also follow social distancing guidelines. This includes only allowing people to use their personal clubs. Rentals are not allowed. And players cannot show up to the course more than 15 minutes before their tee-time.

Drive-in movie theaters are also allowed to reopen as long as patrons stay in or close to their cars. Social distancing guidelines recommended by the CDC are also required.

Restaurants will remain closed in New Hampshire until May 18.
