May 26, 2020 (San Diego’s East County) --Today in a televised update on COVID-19, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that hair salons and barbershops in most counties will now be able to reopen their doors. The businesses must meet the state’s reopening guidelines .
Late today, San Diego County approved allowing local salons and barbershops to reopen as soon as they implement and post a safe reopening plan.
Supervisor Dianne Jacob called the Governor’s action “another welcome step in getting our businesses back into business."
The order does not apply to nail salons, however, and certain close-contact services remain prohibited including facials, shaves, eyebrow waxing and threading, and eyelash treatments.
