As businesses around Tysons reopen after being shut down for coronavirus concerns, personal care services such as nail salons are making customer and employee safety protocols their top priority.
Tysons Nail Lounge has reopened for business following Northern Virginia’s transition into Phase 1 of reopening on Friday, May 29. The nail salon located in The Boro is taking customers by appointment only.
“We’ve been pretty impacted by the shutdown because we’re a personal-care business,” said Emily Tran, the owner of Tysons Nail Salon. “Since we opened, business has picked up a lot. Customers feel safe.”
While most of Virginia reopened on May 15, localities in Northern Virginia requested extra time “to meet the health metrics,” according to Gov. Ralph Northam. After granting the delay, Northern Virginia finally entered Phase 1 on Friday. Previously, Virginia had been under a stay-at-home order since March 30 due to the coronavirus and is now under a safer-at-home directive.
Tysons Nail Lounge is taking precautions to make sure their customers feel safe. Customers are required to wear masks — if they don’t own one, the salon will provide disposable masks, according to Tran.
Additionally, the salon is taking customer temperatures at the door with a no-touch thermometer while also requiring their employees to take their temperature prior to each shift. Plexiglass sneeze guards have been installed at each station and are designed with a slot for customers to slide their hands through.
“Our goal is to keep customers and staff healthy with maximum sanitation and disinfection procedures. We are taking necessary precautions so customers feel safe,” said Tran.
Tysons Nail Lounge is a relatively new business. The salon made its grand opening in January of this year after a few months of delays from their original opening that was slated for November 2019. Their services include manicure and pedicure services, waxing, massages and more, according to their website, which also provides an extensive breakdown of how they plan to keep their patrons safe.
“We are very happy we’re open again. Customers have been in quarantine for a while and are more than joyful that we’re open,” Tran said. “We’re prepared, and we’re definitely ready to take on customer demands.”
