There's always been 100 per cent effort given when it comes to sanitization at one local nail salon.
Now TL Nails owner Long Trinh said they're giving another 100 per cent to make sure everyone who enters the doors is safe.
Once a client enters the door, they are offered a sploosh of hand sanitizer and directed to the seat they will take for the service they would like to access.
Employees are all masked and transparent shields are strategically in place for everyone's protection.
The salon opened May 19 and coming back from the forced closure to follow provincial health guidelines in response to the coronavirus pandemic has seen fewer clients returning for their usual manicures and pedicures, Trinh said.
"It's really nice to see customers coming back healthy," Trinh said. "We are excited to get back to work."
Trinh said he's hoping that going forward all businesses will adhere to the guidelines put in place by the provincial health officer and that will continue to flatten the curve so everyone continues to stay safe and business can carry on as usual.
The lack of funds coming into the business when the bills still had to be paid put the pressure on but they are slowly coming back from that, he added.
Teresa Nelson is a faithful customer who is happy to be getting her nails done and as a treat got a manicure and pedicure. Usually it's a once-a-month manicure.
"It's wonderful to be back," Nelson said. "I couldn't wait for them to open again."
