Macon barber Marshall Hughes, like barbers across Georgia, has been idle lately. Not so for his daughter. She’s in her second year as a nurse at the Medical Center at Navicent Health, Macon’s main hospital, where they are caring for COVID-19 patients.
“She’s had a great introduction to nursing,” Hughes joked. “Anything after this has got to be downhill.”
Hughes said he missed out on the federal aid for the barber shop he owns out in the dormant-for-now mall on the northside of town. So will he open his shop? He could use the money, but then he thinks of his daughter.
“I'm not gonna be used as a guinea pig,” Hughes said.
