Welcome to Groomingdales!
Pray that this happens when we move into the yellow phase on June 5th:
…we have some shaggy furry friends walking around area neighborhoods, but according to Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine, that could change soon that is expected to graduate at least one region from red status, or a complete stay at home order, to yellow status, which keeps some parts of the order in place but will lift other parts of it. She was asked specifically Monday what would be open in the yellow stage. “We’re not going to be opening restaurants, outside of curbside delivery," Levine said. "We’re not going to be opening bars, we’re not going to be opening sort of large venues, like movie theaters or any type of concerts, but many other businesses. and you mentioned the pet groomers, etc will be able to open, and so we’re looking forward to that step, going from red to yellow, and then we’ll be implementing our measures to make sure that there no outbreaks.”
A number of criteria will be used to determine what opens when, and so while your local amusement park or the mall might not be opening anytime soon, retailers such as dog groomers, which can gather just one worker and one customer at a time, might be on the approved yellow category list.
Please be assured that the safety and well-being of our pets and clients are foremost in our thoughts. We hope that this will help prevent the spread of the virus.
