Finney County residents are now able to get a haircut and work-out in a gym, despite a rapidly accelerating increase in the rate of COVID-19 cases. The Finney County Commission, acting as the county’s board of public health, decided to follow the state’s reopening plan, which allows hair and nail salons, barber shops and tattoo parlors to open for pre-scheduled appointments. Gyms and fitness centers are also allowed to reopen, but without access to locker rooms or group classes.
