Bradley Salon calls COVID-19 shutdown “social injustice” protest today


Share post:

A protest against Illinois’ COVID-19 shutdown is scheduled today at Noon at Creative Styles in Bradley.

Among those protesting include hairstylists from the area who say like the shutdown is a ‘social injustice’ for them, as they’ve been allegedly turned down for unemployment to date.

 “We feel at this point is a social injustice,” said Diana Sarowatz with Creative Styles in Bradley. “We have been turned down for unemployment and it seems all other sources are exhausted.  We need to provide for our families.  With common-sense practice, people want and need hair service.”

Hairstylists in Georgia reopened last Friday by maintaining distance by using every other work station to space customers out and keeping hand sanitizer close by while customers wore gloves.   For customers to social distance themselves from their own stylists, of course, is its own challenge.  

On Monday, IDPH reported 45,883 COVID-19 cases in the State of Illinois. Of those confirmed, 338 came from Kankakee County accounting for 27 deaths.

Creative Styles is located at 1220 W. Broadway in Bradley.
