The government’s recent announcement to reopen haircut service during the prolonged movement control order (MCO) amid the concerning Covid-19 outbreak in our country was met with mixed remarks.

While some agreed that hair salons should resume its business so that people can get their hair cuts, others argued that the decision is risky for everyone. Well, even Sharnaaz Ahmad feels the same as well.

“I know that the government allows us to go and get a haircut. Everyone please be patient. People say that it’s still fine if you consider hair cuts as the last thing (on your must-do-list). It’s not like you’re attending a meeting or a show that requires you to get one. It’s been awhile since I last acted, just staying put at my house while folding my clothes,” the “Darah Panas” actor said in a clip uploaded on his Instagram recently.

He continued, “Do y’all understand? There’s no need to go to the barbershop. Just cut your own hair. If you don’t want then it’s fine to keep your hair long for now. There’s nothing wrong with that. Opening other stores like hardware goods is still considered okay since the items sold at the shops are important.”

“For this case, when you go the shop, you’ll get close to the barber and vice versa. So, if one person contracts the disease, other’s will also be in jeopardy. Think about it for a moment – we all want to end this pandemic for good. Do y’all want to celebrate Hari Raya while in quarantine?” questioned Sharnaaz.

Do y’all agree with Sharnaaz’s point of view?

Update (Monday, 13th April 6pm):

Following massive amount of backlash received, the government has confirmed that they have decided to withdraw the decision to allow hair and beauty salons as well as optometry shops to resume its business during the MCO period.

According to Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, the decision was made by PM Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin after they sought for advice from a number of reliable sources, including health experts and authorities, as well as views from non-governmental organisations and the public.

“We are aware on the decision to allow hair salons and barbershops to operate has sparked a debate among citizens. The government listens to the people and in line with this, the Prime Minister has decided not to allow these businesses to operate throughout the MCO. I hope this answers all questions and will reduce all the concerns regarding the issue,” he was quoted as saying.
