A beauty salon that reportedly told customers coronavirus does not exist is being looked into by the police.
Skin Kerr salon in Bootle had put posters up outside that read “you can’t catch what doesn’t exist” and told visitors staff would not be wearing masks, according to pictures shared on social media.
According to a picture of the sign obtained by the BBC, it described the salon as “Covid free” and said: “No masks, we take cash, Covid talk is banned” and added hashtags #voodoovirusisbullshit and #wedonotconsent.
The salon is said to have expressed the same statements on its social media feeds – which have now been made private.
The posters and the social media posts have been taken down and Sefton Council has said it is looking into how the salon has responded to Covid-19.
