Just when will nail salons open in Ontario depends on a few factors. Like barbers, salons are not considered essential, and even though massage therapy clinics can reopen now, the same doesn’t hold true for these personal care services. Nail salons are tentatively slated for Phase 2 of reopening

During the news conference Tuesday, Abbott said hair and nail salons , barbers and tanning facilities can reopen to customers on Friday, May 8, provided they maintain Restaurants currently operating under Phase 1 of the " Open Texas" plan are currently required to limit seating to 25% of capacity.

That's how Maude Elysa describes the business phone at Coiffure Moda Elysa in Gatineau, Que., ever since the Quebec government announced beauty salons would be included in the latest round of businesses to reopen Monday.

Hair salons . Museums, galleries and libraries. Seasonal day camps. Asked why tattoo parlours, estheticians, cosmetologists and the like aren't being opened in Phase 1, as hair salons are, Pallister said "it's because every business is different."

Using ‘just walk out’ technology to end queues, Amazon Go fires a warning to the high street.

"I basically found out that we were reopening from our customers," said Elysa, who's been returning calls some nights until as late as 9 o'clock.

"I feel like Santa Claus," she said, "They're like, 'Yay!' when I call back. They're so happy to talk to me." 

Others, she added, sound a bit desperate. 

"We are not essential, but we seem to be essential to some people's well-being," she said.

Earlier this week the province also earmarked June 1 for the opening of marinas, accommodations like Airbnb rentals and campgrounds outside Montreal. 

The plan, however, is out of sync with Ontario's more conservative timeline, which has some Gatineau business owners anticipating Ottawa residents will find the trip across the river irresistible. 

"Definitely we're going to have Ontario plates in the parking lot next week," said Guy Leblanc, the manager of Galeries Aylmer. "So we're getting ready." 

The trip to the mall, however, will be a bit different from before the pandemic, with no comfy benches or children's rides. Nor will there be tables and chairs at the food court, said Leblanc, but there will be lots of hand sanitizer stations "so people feel secure when they're inside."

While residents are anxious for signs the world is returning to normal, Fortin said having the Outaouais out of sync with eastern Ontario could present challenges, since the regions are so closely linked.

Fortin said it would have made sense to have had "more discussion" between governments on both sides of the river.

"It's not perfect. It's going to lead to some issues of, maybe, people travelling back and forth more than they usually would. And that's something that we should be trying to avoid," he said.

"From a public health standpoint, it does raise some questions."

Masks, face shields and apprehension

"Personally I would have preferred if hair salons waited a bit longer, because [of] all the measures we have to take and the fact that we're incredibly close to the customers," she said.

She said those "extreme measures" may make an appointment with the hair dresser may a bit like a visit to an alien planet. 

"We have to wear masks, we have to wear face shields. How is it going to be cutting hair with face shields?" 

Elysa said her salon is implementing a mandatory mask policy for customers as well.
