Salons and barbershops in Arizona have reopened for the first time after a month-long state-mandated shutdown to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

But most looked different Friday in the new age of social distancing. At Uptown Barbershop in Phoenix, clients have to electronically sign in outside. Barber stations are now 6 feet apart. The number of known COVID-19 cases statewide has passed 10,000, and officials have reported 67 additional deaths. Arizona health officials said 35 of the newly reported deaths were based on reviews of death certificates from as far back as April 12.
