TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.
Marie Tran and her husband Austin have been doing nails in Tallahassee for over 20 years. After seven weeks of being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, they re-opened Bliss Nail Spa with new safety measures to protect customers.
With their resources, they opted to provide cloth and disposable masks to the public right out of their nail salon.
"We were giving them away with no service required," Marie Tran said. "You can just come by and pick them up if you'd like. We were able to get access to plenty of masks and that was just something that we wanted to do to help with the spread of the virus. Also, we appreciate the clients coming in being able to put on a mask for the courtesy."
Other than using EPA approved disinfectants and making hand sanitizer more available, they made physical changes that aren't going unnoticed.
"We place plexiglass partitions in-between pedicure chairs, and we also got acrylic glass sneeze guards that we put in the nail stations," said Marie Tran. "We also have our ventilation system on all day to make sure that air doesn't circulate, and we're asking all clients to wear a mask, to wash hands before and after service."
They also sanitize after each client, and every technician is Barbicide certified in COVID-19 prevention.
Bliss Nail Spa is located at 1624 Capital Circle NE.
