Beauty Salon Scraps Masks And Claims Coronavirus 'Doesn't Exist'

Beauty Salon Scraps Masks And Claims Coronavirus 'Doesn't Exist'

A beauty salon has banned customers from talking about coronavirus and says staff won't be wearing masks as the virus 'doesn't exist'.

Skin Kerr Aesthetics, Hair and Beauty in Bootle, Merseyside, put up a poster in its window which read: "Covid free salon, no masks, we take cash, covid talk is banned, you can't catch what doesn't exist."

Alongside the bullet point list are the hashtags#voodoovirusisbullsh** and #wedonotconsent, while underneath it read: "Please respect the rules of the salon."

It also shared the poster on its Facebook page, which has since been deleted.

The salon was contacted by the Liverpool Echo, where a woman who said she was the manager said she 'did not want to discuss' the poster but said she had received threats of violence against her.

Under rules designed to limit the spread of the disease, hairdressers and salon staff are required to wear surgical face masks as well as clear visors.

After the poster was shared in snaps online, several people took to social media to condemn the 'irresponsible' salon owner.

One person tagged Merseyside Police on Twitter, writing: "Can we do something about this irresponsible business owner - @skinkerr clinic please? Merseyside already hovering just below levels to have restrictions reimposed."
