Your roots may be longer than your favorite hair color and we will have to get used to looking like Captain Caveman because hairdressers may not open for several months, officials warned.

As the foreclosure continues and draconian measures are expected to be in place in much of daily life, a senior government official has warned that salons and barbers may remain closed until the end of the year.

And it doesn’t look good for your nails either, so you’ll probably have to get used to doing it yourself.

A senior adviser told The Sun, “People’s hair will get quite long. We’re all going to end up looking like Captain Caveman by the end of this story. “

The majority of people have not been able to have their hair cut by a professional since March 23, when the country was locked, which has led to new, rather creative (or disastrous) looks.

A public health expert has warned that clear advice on visiting family and friends should be ready as soon as possible.

Professor Linda Bauld said that the indefinite protection of vulnerable groups such as the over 70s would be “incredibly unpleasant and damaging to families”.

England’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty said the UK will likely have to live with some form of disruptive social measures for at least the rest of the year.

Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon echoed his comments, adding that “a return to normal because we knew it was not planned in the near future”.

Professor Bauld, Professor of Public Health at the University of Edinburgh, said that international travel would probably be “strongly discouraged” until the fall, but that clear guidance is needed on the possibility of traveling safely the UK.

She said, “Would people be able to drive to actually see their loved ones physically, during the summer months, when the weather should not be for everyone, but for most of the UK, and that the contact can be outside?

“This is the kind of discussion the government needs to have with the people so that we can reestablish some of this contact. “

She said it is also “essential” to take into account internal trips to the UK where flights or ferries are required for visits between Britain and Northern Ireland as well as the offshore islands from Scotland.

The government will have to balance attempts to protect public health with the human right to social contact, including family, added Professor Bauld.

Sturgeon released a document on Thursday indicating that the lifting of restrictions in Scotland will be a gradual process and that those currently protected are likely to remain indoors.

But Professor Bauld said, “I think isolating people indefinitely from their older parents is incredibly unpleasant and detrimental to families.

“So if the government continues to advise that everyone over the age of 70 is protected, they will need to have a very strong rationale and they will need to have an active public conversation about what the options are.”

She said that at the start of the pandemic, when the lock was first put in place, the government did not seem ready to answer detailed questions from people about restrictions, such as the duration of daily exercise or whether these protections could leave the house. at all.

She said, “Basically the government then had to invent these kinds of things on its back because it hadn’t thought of the different scenarios that the public would face. “

With any orientation, there must be “careful communication about what it really means for individuals in their individual situation,” she added, developed on the basis of what is known about the transmission of the virus. and results obtained in other countries.

People need something to look forward to and want certainty about the future, said Dr. Rebecca Semmens-Wheeler, lecturer in psychology at the University of Birmingham City.

She said, “I understand their (government) reluctance to give details, but just to give us a glimpse of what we can expect, not a promise, but a ‘look, we don’t know, there there is a lot of uncertainty here but here is what you can expect ”.

“Just so we have an idea, because we’re feeling so out of control right now and it’s not good for mental health. “
