Here’s How to Get Free Goggles or Face Shields for Your Salon or Barbershop
As a part of re-opening WNY, both Erie and Niagara Counties are offering free goggles to salons and barbershops.
Goggles, which are required as part of salons and barbershops being able to re-open, will be provided to business owners by the Niagara County Department of Emergency Services, according to WIVB. Face shields can also be used, but Niagara County is offering goggles. Supplies are limited. If you are a business owner who would like to receive goggles, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need to pick up the goggles from the Public Safety Building in Lockport.

If you are a salon or barbershop owner in Erie County, you can get face shields for your business. You can also register to receive sanitizer and face masks, according to WGRZ. Your business needs to be registered with New York State to get the personal protective equipment. You can register here.
