In order to contain the epidemic, most public sites have remained closed, including barbershops. In response, a mobile barber stand was quickly set up in Feixi county, Anhui province.
Three volunteer hairdressers, wearing masks and using basic tools including scissors, combs and medical alcohol, are manning the stand, which has served hundreds of people since Feb 15.
"Many people working in epidemic prevention and control have not had their hair cut for more than 20 days, and we wanted to do our bit," said 46-year-old Ge Xianling, one of the volunteers.
From 2 pm till dusk every day, the team of barbers is busy visiting communities in city and rural areas, giving free haircuts to those at checkpoints for epidemic prevention and control, as well as elderly residents.
"For those who are on duty and can't leave, we go to them one by one and ask if they need a haircut," Ge said.
After each haircut, they carefully disinfect their tools before moving on to the next client.

Sixteen-year-olds Zheng Wenyu and Ye Qianqiu are students at Hainan Middle School. Together with their classmates, they initiated a donation for Wuhan on WeChat groups, according to Hainan Daily, a local newspaper.
Their peers, including friends and classmates, donated their pocket money and even their "lucky" money, which is given to children as a Lunar New Year gift. About 120,000 yuan ($17,170) was raised within two days.
Learning that sales of agricultural products in Hainan plunged due to the epidemic, they used the funds to purchase 60 metric tons of pumpkins and gourds from local farmers and had them transported to Wuhan.
Netizens praised their fundraising efforts and said they had set an example for the younger generation.
