New state guidance clarifies what services you can get outdoors. Hair services are allowed, as are services for skin care, nails, and massage. Other services which require a hygienic environment (tattooing, electrolysis, piercing) cannot be performed outdoors. Read more in Industry guidance.
County data monitoring
California is monitoring COVID-19 closely
in each local community and keeping the public informed. We’re teaming up with counties to fight it with every tool we have: current local data
, testing, contact tracing, infection control, emergency supplies, containment measures, and more.
Counties should be ready to restore limitations if outbreaks increase. The State Public Health Officer may take action if needed.
Effective July 13, 2020, ALL counties must close indoor operations in these sectors:
- Dine-in restaurants
- Wineries and tasting rooms
- Movie theaters
- Family entertainment centers (for example: bowling alleys, miniature golf, batting cages and arcades)
- Zoos and museums
Additionally, bars, brewpubs, breweries, pubs must close all operations both indoor and outdoor statewide, unless they are offering sit-down, outdoor dine-in meals. Alcohol can only be sold in the same transaction as a meal.
Counties that have remained on the County Monitoring List for 3 consecutive days will be required to shut down the following industries or activities unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up.
- Gyms and fitness centers
- Places of worship and cultural ceremonies, like weddings and funerals
- Offices for non-critical infrastructure sectors
- Personal care services, like nail salons and body waxing
- Hair salons and barbershops
- Shopping malls
Shops that offer tattoos, piercings and electrolysis may not be operated outdoors and must close.
