Good Wednesday everyone!
As you may or may not be aware, NY has made some quick changes to its Covid restrictions for businesses and event spaces as of today. Aside from a few other things, the new updates also bring the state's mask-mandates into line with CDC recommendations.
That means that vaccinated people are no longer required to wear their masks while indoors. While that is most welcome, the state has also left it up to individual businesses to set their own rules. And to that end, Micciche Salon will be holding with its own mask requirements for now.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this might cause. Please understand that the last thing we want to do is make life tougher for those who have gone to get vaccinated. But all the same, we are worried about the timing of this decision, and as you all know we always prefer to err on the side of caution.
Our mask-mandate will not be permanent though. We envision that it will stay in place only until July 1st. That is when NY's more wide-reaching repeal of Covid restrictions is set to activate. The spacing between now and then, just a little over a month (if you can believe it) will allow us to make sure that there is no surge of new cases from the rule repeal. Once we ditch the mask rule, we would like for it to stay ditched.
So again, we hope that you understand, and we look forward to the day that all of this will be behind us for good.
