Chulalongkorn University expert virologist Dr Yong Poovorawan said on his Facebook page that both barbers and restaurants could be reopened provided they take strict measures to prevent Covid-19 from spreading.

It would be possible to open barbers if both the barbers and customers wear medical masks, he said. Moreover, barbers should finish their work as fast as possible, spending the least amount of time touching a customer’s head.

The doctor also suggested that barbers limit the number of customers in the shop to one at a time, or conduct an appointment service. Also, the shops must be properly ventilated.

As for restaurants, they were also advised to have good ventilation and observe social distancing with seats spaced appropriately. 

“These places should also limit the number of customers to one at a time and follow strict sanitisation rules,” he added.
