DTI to issue guidelines for other services at barbershops, salons
PASIG CITY, July 4 (PIA) – The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is set to issue the guidelines for other services that can be offered at barbershops and beauty salons.
During the Laging Handa Public Briefing on Friday, Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque said that barbershops and salons will no longer be limited to providing basic haircut services.
“Tinanggal na po ang clause na limited to basic hair cutting services para sa barbero at salon sa guidelines sa mga lugar na nasa GCQ,” said Roque.
Based on the IATF Resolution No. 51 issued on 2 July 2020, the clause “limited to basic hair cutting services” for barbershops and salons under Category III industries in Section (6)(c) of the Omnibus Guidelines in the Implementation of Community Quarantine in the Philippines is hereby deleted.”
However, Sec. Roque reminded the public to wait for the guidelines that will be issued by the DTI.
“Maglalabas pa po muna ang DTI ng guidelines para sa unti-unting pagbalik ng mga serbisyo.”
Likewise, IATF Resolution No. 51 states that, “The DTI shall issue the guidelines that will govern the gradual resumption of other services normally provided by these establishments, to the extent allowed by the minimum public health standards.” (PIA-NCR)
