LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas is allowing beauty salons, barbershops, tattoo shops and massage therapists to reopen next week, easing restrictions that had been imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Friday said the businesses will be allowed to reopen next Wednesday. There will be limits on the number of people allowed inside, and staff and customers must be screened. The announcement is the latest in a series of steps by the Republican governor to roll back the state’s coronavirus restrictions. Hutchinson this week has also announced plans to allow restaurants and gyms to reopen in the coming days.
