(Victor Valley)– The State Department of Public Health this afternoon, June 12, issued guidance that will allow nail salons, tattoo studios, and other personal care services to open back up beginning June 19.
The guidance, https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/expanded-personal-services.pdf, covers “expanded personal care services,” which includes personal care that requires touching a client’s face, such as facials, electrolysis, and waxing. The guidance applies to esthetician, skin care, and cosmetology services; electrology; nail salons; body art professionals, tattoo parlors, and piercing shops; and massage therapy in non-healthcare settings. This guidance is intended to support a safe, clean environment for workers and customers.
The State is not yet allowing youth sports outside of day camp settings, indoor playgrounds, live theater, saunas and steam rooms, nightclubs, concert venues, festivals, theme parks, and higher education to reopen.
