MILWAUKEE — We understand how hard this time has been for our small businesses that had been closed for more than two months.

TMJ4 News is determined to help you find resources to get back to work.

Charlotte Fairburn's medispa Aesthetics 360 Face & Body Center has been closed since mid-March.

As part of the city's 'Moving Forward Milwaukee' plan, she can reopen now with one customer per employee. She is waiting until May 26. In the meantime, a new air sanitation and purification system is up and running in her Third Ward business. She explained, “The UV light kills the viruses, the pathogens, the bacteria.”

Along with creating three separate waiting areas, every customer and staff member’s temperatures will be taken with a no-contact forehead thermometer. Everyone will wear face masks. You can bring your phone in just don’t touch it.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s CEO says changes like what you just heard are not just good ideas, they are necessary.

“I really appreciate that she's going to much lengths to ensure the safety of her employees its really critical,” said Missy Hughes of WEDC.

Here’s your Rebound Rundown:

  • Businesses and spas can re-open; 1 client per employee
  • Expect social distancing requirements like face masks.
  • Changes to physical greetings.

If you know someone who is an essential worker, Aesthetics 360 Face & Body Center is giving out 50 free facials. All you have to do is nominate them by filling out the form through this link.

Small business owners are being reminded that best business practices recommended by WEDC will change over time.
