ok so not the best example, but you get the picture, if there was a possibility that s/o had poison, you'd stay far away, same here stay far away and be as Machmir as possible!!!  its pikuach nefesh!!
I agree that I personally wouldnít do this. Iím not a medical professional, and donít know if this poses a risk. I would say, that I donít really see why you canít get a haircut from your wife daughter, son etc... if at all possible. For most people who have been careful about social distancing, personally I wouldnít take the risk. Especially as this barber has been traveling house to house, and has a greater chance of picking up the virus, then your avg person. Remember even if the haircut gets botched, no one will be seeing it for a while!

I spoke with a medical professional who is on the front lines.

1 - It is unclear if people who have had COVID-19 can no longer get it. There are indications that they could.
2 - There appears to be two distinct strains of COVID-19 going around and people can certainly get both.
3 - It is still unknown how long after someone gets better are they no longer contagious.
4 - There are many studies coming out that the virus can travel much greater distances than 6 feet.

I've seen these points all over. I've yet to see anything but vague references to someone in China who got it twice, or people saying we dont know if there are not 2 strains, or how long it takes to become no longer contagious.
But I have heard that if we base it on other similar virus we should not be worried about 2 stains or getting it again for a good few months, and 72 hours should be good for most people.
I'm not who you think I am.

Message from Lakewood Hatzola and Bikur Cholim

It is critically important that if you or a family member experiences shortness of breath or worsening of the coronavirus illness, that you do not hesitate to call Hatzola or go to the hospital immediately.
The past 2 shabbosim, there have been numerous cases of people waiting too long, until Motzei Shabbos, to Call Hatzola or go to the hospital, resulting in serious consequences.
This is sakana nefashos mamash. 
If there is any question of shortness of breath or worsening of disease on Shabbos, do not hesitate to call Hatzola or go to the hospital. Treat Shabbos as any other day of the week!
Have a healthy and safe Shabbos

Iíll keep it in mind next time Iím in Nigeria.
Also, as Iím sure you are aware, this has nothing to do with the barber having aids. This article is about aids being transmitted via the tools the barber is using. Thatís a totally different conversation.

Why do you think at the very least the same concern exists here? Itís the barber passing the virus from one client to the next as he and his tools are in close proximity to the patient and his droplets for an extended time.

Exactly - this is a new experience.
Hence, the need to be careful.

I hate to say this but the senior medical professionals I've spoken to say attitudes like yours are literally killing people.
1 - There is quite a lot of evidence that a person remains contagious longer than 72 hours.
2 - Even if not, many people may consider themselves better even though they still have minor lingering symptoms.
3 - People can be silent carriers.
There is a reason every single medical professional is urging everyone to just stay home unless absolutely necessary - whether they feel sick or not.

I donít get it. So many Iíve spoke to  on shabbos were surprised that Iím staying home for YT. People are like ďask you own shaila as rabbanim are saying dif thingsĒ. Here I was thinking that everyone is on the same page and all rabbanim are urging everyone to stay home period.

People should definitely be asking their own Shaalos. One Rov told me the letter was worded very strongly to discourage people from acting on their own, but people may very well get answers tailored to their situation.
