Back on Friday, Governor Wolf releases a list of 12 more PA counties that will move into his less restrictive green phase this coming Friday, Erie County was not on that list.

Local State Representative, Ryan Bizzarro said last week he's urging businesses to operate as if they were in the green phase and one local business is set to do that today.

You haven't been able to get a hair cut for 13 weeks now, at Garver's Barber and More, Owner Nicholas Garver tell Erie News Now he's opening up today despite the Governors orders.

"It's definitely very frustrating," says Garver. "I went to school and they trained us with bacteriology, infectious diseases."

Garvers says he started renting a new shop on West 26 St. four days before the shutdown began, a week later, his son was born.

"That's been the hardest thing, we're sitting here struggling, burning through our savings, and I just want to get back to work."

He says during the yellow phase you can have groups of 25 or less and his business is just him and one customers.

"What Tom Wolf is saying I can have 25 people at my house as long as we're social distancing and I could cut every bodies hair if I wanted to. Not as a business owner but as a friend, donations only, and its perfectly fine but, I can't open up my own business and cut hair in my own business, that I went to school for, have student debt and that's what hurts the most."

After speaking with his attorney yesterday, Garver says PA legislators never passed a law prohibiting businesses of any degree to close and that's why he's going to start cutting hair again.

Garver tells Erie News Now he'll be taking all the safety precautions and follow the CDC guidelines.

He will doing appointments only, text upon arrival, and only one family will be allowed inside the shop at a time.

Garver also mentioned that the state won't answer his calls, which leads him to believe when he opens today, the state will not have the resources to shut him down.

"I'm definitely working as hard as I can to reopen, it breaks my heart to my customers traveling down to Crawford County or Ohio to get their hair cut, knowing that I'm capable of protecting them the same."

Garver's Barber and More is set to open today at 10 a.m.
