Colin Moxey did not sign up to be a bouncer. But when his eponymous hair salon in Melbourne’s Chapel Street shopping precinct reopens to its now-shaggy waitlist of 300 clients, Colin is afraid the government will make him work out his own COVID-19 vaccine policy for clients, instead of setting clear rules for all businesses.
“The last thing I want to do is be like a doorman at a nightclub – I don’t want to choose [which patrons can enter]. And if they can’t get vaccinated that puts you in a real predicament,” he says. “If there is an official notice from the government on my front door, it takes the onus off me.”
