Some Personal Care Services Move Outdoors
July 23, 2020
Governor Newsom modified guidance this week to allow for personal care services in outdoor settings upon approval by the local health officer. In counties on the state Monitoring List, services including hair styling, barbering, facials, manicure and pedicures, and massage may operate outside within certain parameters set by the state. All services must be rendered outdoors, and operators may utilize a tent or canopy as long as no more than one side is closed to allow for sufficient air movement.
While the new guidance provides a path for many personal care businesses to continue operations, services that must be provided in a controlled hygienic environment such as electrology, tattooing, and piercing are excluded from today’s guidance and not permitted in outdoor settings.
