Hamilton Nail Salon Caught Serving Customers
A nail salon in Hamilton Township was just fined for serving customers against the Governor's executive order to remain closed, according to TAPinto Hamilton/Robbinsville.
After doing surveillance, Hamilton Police caught Diamonds Nail Salon on South Broad Street sneaking customers in the back door of the salon to provide services on Monday afternoon. Officers issued the owner, Thong Quoc Tran, of Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, a summons.
But, this isn't the first time this has happened. The nail salon was also caught operating illegally back on April 11th. According to the article, "both violations are disorderly persons offenses."
Governor Murphy announced yesterday that some non-essential businesses may be the next to be reopened, with social distancing policies in place, but, until then, they must comply with the Governor's executive order and remain closed. Murphy also said New Jersey's Public Health Emergency will be in effect for an additional 30 days, at least, until the beginning of June.
Times are so tough right now. I'm sure this salon owner is desperate for money, like so many other small business owners. Plus, customers are craving their nail services. I get it. I need a pedicure but, I'm not about to risk my health and go against the Governor's executive order.
Many New Jerseyians are getting antsy and are ready to resume some sort of normalcy, as the Governor's stay at home orders have been in place for going on two months now. The Governor has defended his decision saying it was necessary for the state, in order to flatten the curve of the virus.
Diamonds Nail Salon is located at 2200 South Broad Street in Hamilton Township.
