CLOSED: ‘NONESSENTIAL’ BUSINESSES FACING WEEKSLONG SHUTDOWN
Some customers spent their Saturday making final visits to those nonessential businesses Gov. Kay Ivey ordered shut down through April 17 last week.
In downtown Tuscaloosa, Style Connections barbershop owner Johnny Weatherspoon was taking care of customers ahead of the forced closure.
Weatherspoon said he doesn’t mind closing up for the safety of his employees and their clients.
“Safety should be the main focus here,” he said. “If I’m not here to do my business then what good is it? So I don’t want people to come down here and get infected, and I don’t want to get infected by anyone else so I’m OK with whatever we need to do to get this thing under control.”
