Beauty salons in NSW will be able to reopen in one week as the state government eases further COVID-19 restrictions.
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said beauty salons will be allowed to begin treatments from June 1 but strict rules will be in place.
“Big day for women in the community,” Mr Hazzard told reporters in Sydney on Sunday.
“Of all the requests I’ve had as health minister, this one topped the barrel.”
Businesses will have to have a COVID-19 safe plan which includes removing books and magazines from waiting areas, stepping up hygiene measures and keeping a record of all attendance.
It comes as NSW on Sunday recorded one new coronavirus cases from more than 6800 tests.
