COVID-19 Information

The peacetime emergency declared by Governor Walz ended on July 1, 2021. The ending of the peacetime emergency removed the remaining COVID-19 requirements for barbershops. However, COVID-19 and its variants are still a concern. As owners of small businesses, barbershop owners can implement and manage sanitation procedures above and beyond what the Minnesota Board of Barber Examiners requires. Use the lessons learned during the pandemic to keep your staff and customers safe. If you have not yet been vaccinated, we strongly recommend speaking to your personal care physician about receiving a COVID-19 vaccination or contacting the Minnesota Department of Health helpline at 651-297-1304 or 1-800-657-3504.
