Beauticians Urged To Halt All Activities Due To Coronavirus Crisis
Coronavirus keeps spreading globally and as such everyone is taking precautions however not everyone can save him or herself.
As things keep getting worse every day, folks in the beauty industry, including make-up artists across the country, have been advised to consider suspending their activities due to the spread of the virus.
The beauty industry in Ghana is seen as one of the key areas of society that has a risk of spreading the virus due to the nature of working in that industry.
Make-Up Ghana, organizers of the prestigious Ghana Make-up Award, urge beauticians to consider suspending their bookings.
However, it added that if the booking is critical, then stakeholders must exercise the most extreme caution in dealing with their clients.
“We urge all beauty practitioners to suspend all bookings or adopt the use of face masks and gloves if the booking is critical. Use alcohol-based cleansers to disinfect brushes, eyeliners, pencils, etc as well as usage of disposal applicators,” Make-Up Ghana
It also reiterated the call on the use of sanitizers and washing of hands with soap under running water for 20 seconds, among others, to avoid contamination. The advice follows that of other industries that have suspended their activities to stem the spread of coronavirus.
Ghana has recorded six confirmed cases of the virus. In the wake of that, President Akufo-Addo has ordered the closure of all schools and universities in the country as part of measures to stem the tide of coronavirus cases.
There is also suspension on public gathering as well as other stringent travel measures to curb the spread.
