Mayor: No more haircuts, perms, facials or massages in Morristown for awhile

You can't get a haircut like this in Morristown for awhile. This is a 2015 photo of Tim Corcio getting a trim upon entering the U.S. Naval Academy. Photo by Navy photo by Mass Communications Specialist 2nd Class Nathan Wilkes.


As of 7 o’clock 8 o’clock this evening, Tuesday, March 17, 2020, all Morristown barber shops, hair salons, licensed cosmetology, and massage establishments must close and remain closed until further notice.

That’s per order of Mayor Tim Dougherty.

“By the nature of their business, barber shops, salons, and massage establishments service their customers within the six foot radius the CDC recommends to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The health and safety of our residents is our utmost priority and we will continue to take necessary actions to flatten the curve,” Dougherty said in a statement.

Last week, the mayor imposed curfews and occupancy limits in bars, and on Sunday night he issued an order closing restaurants and bars that took effect at noon Monday.  He is encouraging residents to get takeout or delivery from local restaurants during the pandemic.
