CityNews interviewed our very own Claudia Iacono re: the idea of vaccine passports.
Unvaccinated Quebecers may soon have to use their own curling irons. Meaning it’s possible you’ll soon need to present proof of vaccination at the door of a salon, as the province floats the idea of imposing vaccine passports on salons and other non-essential businesses like shopping malls.
Now that Quebec is already requiring it for liquor and cannabis stores starting Jan. 18, some working in the retail and beauty industries are against the possible measure, saying it won’t be feasible to apply.
“As a small business we pay a lot of taxes and we try to run the business the best way we can. But putting someone at the door, checking vaxi-codes, you have to pay salary to do that,” explained Claudia Iacono, owner of Salon Deauville. “There’s a lot of stuff to consider and there’s a lot of things they should look into.”
