In defiance of Governor Ned Lamont's executive order Kat Thibodeau opened her barbershop, Modern Barber, in Pawcatuck on Wednesday morning, March 20, 2020.

"The governor's not paying my bills, I have to pay my bills and this is what I have to do to pay my bills," said Thibodeau of reopening despite the push of barbershops and salons from opening until early next month that was announced earlier this week.  Town and health officials visited before the first customers sat in the chair to ensure safety requirements and cleaning protocols were met.
