Hi there,

First, talk to your landlord. Even if you don’t have a right to an abatement in your lease most decent landlords are providing one (especially if you have been a good tenant). At worst, you should get a deferral while no income is coming in. Again, talk to your landlord.

Are the two girls employees or contractors? If they are renting a chair they sound like contractors? If they are contractors, not sure if you are responsible for their subsidy or topping it up? One of the employment lawyers on here may be able to clarify.

Stay strong – lots of people will want to go to the salon when they are able!
