The local barbershops, salons, and gyms can reopen on December 14th, which was good to hear for some of the owners of these businesses, and others were a little cautiously optimistic. According to WIVB, one business in Hamburg feels like it's too late, and her business will not be able to catch up from the loss of revenue earlier this year.

We are not going to catch up in this business, we are not a merchandise company, we're a hands on service. Time is money in this business just like tatoo people and gyms.

According to WIVB, Gyms, Barbershops, Salons, Nail Salons, Tattoo shops, and other personal care places will have to reopen at 25 percent capacity and there is a testing requirement. Science shows that barbershops have a.14 percent risk of coming in contact with COVID-19 and gyms have a.6 percent increase.

Gym owners are pretty excited to hear the news as well, Amy Bueme is the owner of Catalyst Fitness. Amy said.

I'm happy that he has finally seen the light, but it has been a long road, of not listening not looking at the data and letting the fitness clubs take care of the community mentally and physically and build up their immune systems.

According to WIVB

I'll tell you one thing, I'm happy to see that these services are going to reopen, like many people here in Buffalo, I'm ready to get back to working out at my local gym.
