Visiting hairdressers?

Hello folks,I look after my mother at home and had been trimming my mums hair and found that it's harder than it looks ;) So after doing that about 3 times,I have given it time for her hair to settle down from my attempts and have decided that I should wait to see if I can get the visiting hairdresser again.I just thought I would run that past the forum members to see if anyone has managed to get a hairdresser to visit recently and if they think it's safe?
Mum is unable to leave the home so it has to be a home visit,pre covid she did have a lady that visited
I know it adds another risk but mum has 8 carers each day that have their own lives and shopping trips anyway so a risk is always there

My parents' regular visiting hairdresser started back in mid July and they've had a visit from her with no problems. Their cleaning lady is back there today for the first time too. Suitable PPE of course but neither they nor I are overly worried about these visits.

Ok thanks.I have sent her usual lady a text but she hasn't got back to me yet,she's possibly on holiday.It will be lovely to see mums hair short again as it brings out her cheeky face

I agree, it should be fine, I hope you hear back from the hairdresser soon. She's probably quite busy!
